A huge book Published by J.B. FORD & COMPANY of New York in 1873 with 25 chromo-lithographs drawn from Scriptural, Historical, and Legendary sources by HARRIET BEECHER STOWE ( 1811-1896). This book appears to be an 'extended' version of one published with just 16 colour plates. The book is 12" x 8.5" and is in very good condition for age.....has stains to cover and some mild age spotting on some pages....firsts few pages are a little loose on binding due to the sheer weight of the book when opened. The colour plates are protected by tissue except in one instance where it is missing....some wear showing on spine borders of that plate. In all a very good copy and a rare book. This book is much harder to come by than the 16 plate version which sells for around US$250 ...the only other book that I have seen of this particular expanded edition is listed at US$429 by an online book seller. Our price represents exceptional value but please do bear in mind that freight will high due to the weight of the book.
