Spanish Pictures, Drawn with Pen and Pencil. With Illustrations by Gustave Dore and other eminent Artists

London: The Religious Tract Society, no date [1875]. Hardcover. 200p., hardbound in quarter calf gilt-titled over featureless black boards, a custom job but merely utilitarian. Profuse b&w reproductions, only a couple of which might be original strikes (woodblock: see "Gypsy Musicians" at p.158 and "Young Woman of Valencia," p.191, the latter a Dore'). Casebinding holds textblock soundly but boards are very edgeworn, the presssed calf of spine is thoroughly scuffed although the utilitarian titling and rullings are intact and bright. Foxing greatly mars the endsheets and tissue-guards, while text, plates and vignettes are all good.
