Description

    The Frederick Howland Roosa
    Architecture Collection

    [Architecture]. French Architecture Collection of Mr. Frederick Howland Roosa. 1830 - [1910]. Sixty-three large folio volumes of approximately 6,000 architectural plates of France and Italy. The collection consists mostly of large engraved plates, some of which are hand-colored, and a few photogravures. Plate sizes vary from roughly 12 x 14 inches to 18 x 24.5 inches. With the exception of four volumes of loose unbound plates, the books are bound in a variety of half leathers over marbled paper covered boards, with raised bands and gilt titles on spines. The bindings are rubbed, chipped, and lightly soiled; some cracked joints and hinges, few detached boards as noted in the extended description below; the pages are clean with occasional dampstaining, tears, or paper loss. There is foxing in some of the volumes, and unobtrusive holograph pencil underlines or notes. Few plate numbers corrected by hand. Otherwise a very large and very good collection of architectural plates .
