RECOLLECTIONS OF MR. JAMES LENOX OF NEW YORK AND THE FORM...
by Stevens, Henry
First edition, one of the very scarce large-paper copies printed on Whatman paper. The three portraits are done in proof on India paper. Well printed by the Chiswick Press. A wonderful history of Americana collecting told by the bookseller, Henry Stevens. Loosely inserted is the original four page prospectus offering both the trade and the special editions of this book. These special large paper copies are in a bigger format and the original price was almost 4 times the price of the regular edition, Covers show rubbing and some soiling. Small chip out of edge of leather spine label.
