The Miracles Of Our Lord

London: Longman, 1848. First edition. Hardcover. Unpaginated. 17 x 12 cm. Thirty two chromolithographed plates. The author, a British illustrator, naturalist, entomologist and numismatist took advantage of the Victorian craze for for gift books as well as aquariums, providing practical instruction for creating them at home. This work exemplifies the former, as GORDON N. RAY 232 notes in his Chromolithography section: "'Not content merely to imitate his medieval predecessors, he created fresh designs in their spirit, thus producing the most attractive of chromolithographic books." Chips to upper cover corners, last two text leaves (Remarks of the Illuminator) toned, T. Bowler book label, Manchester, and gift inscription dated 1849. Black leather spine, papier mache boards decorated in blind. Aeg. Very good. Item #22423
