Richard Cosway, R.A.
In a delightfully decorative binding
First thus, hardback, bound in the original blue cloth with ornate gilt design with silver printed insert to upper board. Top edge gilt. 23 × 16cm, xiii + 147pp.
A biographical illustrated study of the artist Richard Cosway (1742–1821), based on the author's previous book of 1896. The book is illustrated throughout with black and white plates and has an engraved self-portrait of the artist as a frontispiece.
This copy is in very good condition. There is light rubbing to the boards' edges and joints and a few small patches of light foxing but otherwise very good.
