Mrs Jameson’s Sacred And Legendary Art, Vol 1 and 2, 1863


These two volumes can only be described as works of art. They are full calf, leather, with gold tooling on the spine, marbled front and end pieces, and gilded pages. They are Sacred and Legendary Art, by Mrs. Jameson, and they were published in London, in 1863 Fourth Edition. It is a very thorough study of religious art that existed at the time, and there are several illustrations and etchings in each volume. Each book measures 8 and ½ x, 6 inches East to West, and is 1 inch and 1/4 deep.

Longman, Green, Longman, Roberts, & Green, London 1863., 6″ x 8 1/2″. Two volumes. Beautifully bound by Jenkins & Cecil in full tree calf with elaborately gilt decorated six panelled spines with raised bands, red & brown leather labels, outer gilt cover borders and gilt decorated inner dentelles, marbled end papers and all page edges gilded.. xix, 394 – xv, 395-818, 285 woodcuts & 19 etchings, some multi figured. These two volumes constitute the First Series; Volume I includes The Legends of the Angels and Archangels, the Evangelists, the Apostles, the Doctors of the Church, and St. Mary Magdalene. Volume II has the Patron Saints, the Martyrs, the Early Bishops, the Hermits, and the Warrior Saints.

Damage to both covers with scuffs and the spine has been held by sellotape at the bottom of Volume 1. The blank pages on page 3 and 4 have mould spots and there is a couple of damp corners. Otherwise the books are in good condition and they are books of notoriety.
