Order Nr. 80415

This third and final edition of Hullmandel's translation of Raucourt's treatise, contains some important new additions. (Bigmore & Wyman II,240). Rebound in buckram with a red leather spine label. Single page newly published advertisement bound at rear. Textblock shows minor soiling and age darkening. Overall a very clean copy. As Hullmandel remarks in the Preface: "... however, excellent M. Raucourts book may be, still there are some parts of it, which, although of interest when Lithography was in its infancy, have become less important now that the art is better known: I have therefore thought that I should make this new edition far more complete, by omitting these parts, and substituting ... a selection of the most useful portions of a very excellent work recently published in Paris by M. Brégeaut. The Manual of Lithography will, by this means, contain a number of recipes not to be found in former editions ..." From the Thomas M. Whitehead Collection of Books About Books.
