I have never seen an antique or vintage book or brochure like this before -- it is so charming! It is small, measuring approximately 6.5 inches (16.5 cm) high by approximately 5 inches (12.7 cm) wide. On the front cover the title is listed as "Mezzotinters of the 18th & 19th Century", while on the title page the full title is listed as "Biographical Notes of XVIII & XIX Century Mezzotinters, Not Mentioned in our Two Previous Brochures".

This book or brochure is paperback, sort of -- the covers are like thick cardboard, and all page edges are rough-cut. It has been bound with string/twine, and from the knot (in the middle of the "spine") down the spine has ripped straight along the edge. It is 34 pages long, including the index, and was printed in New York in 1905 by M. Knoedler & Co. (located at Fifth Avenue & Thirty-Fourth St.). It features numerous short biographical notes (usually one paragraph or so) on various mezzotinters of the 18th & 19th centuries.

Overall condition is good, considering the book is over 100 years old. There is minor chipping and wear to the edges and corners of the covers. The upper left corner of the back cover has been torn off (a small area), and page 11/12 has been torn (there is a tear of approximately 3 inches -- 7.6 cm -- long near the top of the page, and the lower right corner is missing an area of approximately 1.25 inches -- 3.2 cm).

This would be a wonderful addition to any library!

If you are located outside of the U.S., please convo me to let me know the country where you are located, and I will work out the shipping cost.
