This highly collectible and beautiful book is "Poet and the Painter, Or Gems of Art and Song". Published in 1869 by D. Appleton & Co., New York.

It measures about 11" x 8-1/2". It is hardbound and has an embossed leather cover with gilt title. Page edges are also gilt. It has marble end papers. The spine has raised spines. There are dozens of poems and etchings. The poetry is by various writers including Shelley, Dante, Tennyson, Byron, Longfellow, Keats, Percival, Thackeray, Goethe, Wordsworth, Shakespeare and many others. The illustrators are very numerous also. There are 400 pages.

Nice condition, some wear to corners and cover edges and raised bands on spine. The gold gilt is nice both front and back covers. The page edges have some scuffs/light scrapes, but still all gold. Almost seems like the book wasn't ever cracked open and really read. There is a bit of roughness on 1st blank page. Tiny bit of waviness on some pages. Some light ink transference from the illustrations to facing page.

Stunning book to add to your collection.
