Bunyan. John. The Pilgrim's Progress from this World to that which is to come. By John Bunyan. With One Hundred Illustrations by Frederick Barnard and Others. Engraved by Dalziel Brothers. London. Strahan and Company Limited. 1880. Limited Edition, Edition de Luxe Printed on Special Hand-made Paper, with Proofs of Illustrations on Japanese Paper. #95/500.
An imposing folio in vellum, c.10 x 12.5 inches. Some wear, appears to be lacking three illustrations to cover, but if they were ever present, it was a long time ago. The handling is consistent across the panels. Very solid. This is a much better than usual example of this desirable volume. Text is very crisp and clean, as are the tissue-guarded engravings, some of which are rippled in margins as is somewhat usual for this paper.
