Description

House Decoration Comprising Whitewashing, Paperhanging, Painting, Etc. With Numerous Engravings and Diagrams. Edited by Paul Hasluck. This copy is numbered sixth thousand and was published by Cassell and Company Ltd of London in 1895.

With some wear but a useful Victorian reference and helpful for someone restoring a period house. Also contains a number of charming advertisements (see photos).

Contents: On Colour and Paints; Pigments; Oils, Driers, Varnishes etc, Tools Used by Painters; How to Mix Oil Paints; Distemper or Tempera Painting; Whitewashing and Decorating a Ceiling; Painting a Room; Papering a Room; Embellishment of Walls and Ceilings. With 79 black and white hand drawn illustrations.

A practical manual which has picked up a fair amount of wear. Inside the pages are good being clean and tightly bound. With some folded over corners and the odd mark but generally good. They do have darkening and tanning around the closed edges.

Blue flexi cloth covered boards have darkened around the edges and have some light markings and rubbing to the front and back. With blue and red titles and illustrations on the front and rear. There is rubbing and rounding of the cloth at the corners. The spine has tanned and the cloth has also rubbed here at the head and tail. The lettering remains good and un-faded. The spine has become mildly cocked (slanted) with time.

With some wear but still an attractive and useful resource. Making a charming house warming gift for someone moving into a period property. Your Victorian copy of House Decoration will be wrapped with care in tissue and ribbon.

The size of a standard paperback H 18 cm x 11 cm, 160 pages, 0.17 kg. I dispatch worldwide daily from the UK. (With the exception of a small number of countries.)
