1st edition rare illuminated book papier-mache binding
Henry Noel Humphreys, "Parables of our Lord" printed 1847, New York,D. Appleton edition. 2000 of these books were printed in 1947 and, of those, 1000 were printed with D. Appleton title page. Front and Back book covers are made of Paper-Mache boards covered with elaborately carved black plaster. 31 pages plus the title page are multi-colored chromolithographed, illuminated with each page having a different design. According to the inscription, this copy was a gift from Will, an "affectionate brother" to his sister Sue Christmas 1947. I am not a book dealer so my knowledge is limited. Book pages need to be reglued.
