Old Naval Prints, a Scarce and Unusual Collection, 24 Prints in Colors, Depicting 75 Ships (1893)

New York: National Military Publishing Company, (1893). First Printing. Complete collection of 24 chromolithograph prints on sheets measuring approx. 14.5 x 11 inches, with cover of the original box-lid or card chemise the prints were housed in. Each plate has a smaller black and white printed reduction of the plates on their versos with the ships identified. Overall fair condition: many of the prints have some edgewear, soil and darkening to margins and three having some tears and rumpling to upper left margins, but most all of the images themselves are clean and free of wear, only the margins are affected, and quite a number are in what we'd call very good condition. Very rare and the only time this has appeared at auction, according to rarebookhub, 4 prints from the set sold for $360 at Northeast Auctions in 2013. Wonderful images with a predominantly gray-green background scheme, these would all mat & frame up really nicely. Fair. Item #H27677

Price: $1,000.00
