Large clothbound portfolio, blue cloth spine and covers with flaps that attach to back cover; the flaps cover the top and bottom page black edges and fold over to be closed inside the front cover; the flaps are made of blue cloth that matches the covers, except the ends of the flaps that close inside the front cover, which are made of marbled paper-covered boards. The portfolio has been professionally restored, saving the original cloth of the front and back covers and the marbled paper-covered boards that serve as flap ends, but adding new cover boards, a new spine, new flap hinges to cover the page block ends, new pastedowns, and new attached ribbon ties at the fore edges of both covers. The new materials are in like new condition. Original cloth of the covers is a bit wrinkled/blistered, and is scuffed and smudged, especially at its edges. Page block edges are darkened; pages are clean and bright, except title page of Volume One, which has "shadows" of portfolio flaps. There are small owner's names stamped on all pages at one of the corners, but these stamps do not intrude on the plates or text. Oversize. All two hundred called-for black-and-white plates are present, and there is an extra Plate 127. The loose pages in the portfolio are divided into two volumes. At the start of each volume are a title page, a list of plates, and a list giving the dimensions of the objects depicted in some of the plates. Unpaginated, but probably 500 or so pages between the two volumes Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.
