New York: Edwin C. Hill, ND, ca. 1920. Hardcover. No date, ca. 1920, tall octavo, full deep cherry red morocco gilt with watered red silk endpapers and gilt morocco turn-ins, light rubbing, very good. Appears to be the plate volume for his multi-volume set, perhaps used as a selling tool or salesman's dummy. Has title page, frontispiece, plates mounted on velin and sometimes printed on vellum-paper in sepia tones, one sample accompanying text, 52 plates plus engraved title page. Plates printed on a variety of paper types, and include many well known wealthy philanthropists and magnates, and a goodly share of Presidents, politicians and military figures. Teddy Roosevelt, Lincoln, Woodrow Wilson, H. C. Frick, Andrew Carnegie are among the notables. We can find no record of another book like this. Light wear to joints and edges, but very good, contents very nice indeed. Very Good. Item #H5081
