First Edition of Pugin's text-free collection of gold and silver designs. 27 plates with tissue paper covering. About very good in publisher's cloth with paper cover label. While all copies we have seen of this book contain some red stamping, this copy contains additional hand-painted red accents. Some foxing, chipping to boards and minor spine tear. This collection has been referred to as “superb pen draughtsmanship” that Pugin had developed over the years 1833-1835, when he was producing his ideal schemes. Belcher A4.1.
