Braunschweig: Druck und Verlag von George Westermann, 1865. 2557 numbered illustrations on 336 pp. + prelims & subject indexes on first 16 pp. About 33.5 x 25.5 cm. Original paper covers badly worn; spine perished; volume shaken and partly disbound. A green half-sheet mounted on the half-title outlines the forms of purchase for clichés and electroplates [galvanischen Niederschlägen]. The book is housed in a portfolio 35.3 x 26 cm that has decorations applied to the endpapers and probably was made for a different purpose. Edges of leaves worn and and with intermittent light foxing, but paper generally good for its age. The index records images for portraits; historic portrayals, initials, and vignettes; cultural history and ethnography; Asia; America (over 250); Africa; Australia; cities and buildings & landscapes and seascapes subdivided by location; historic representations; fine arts; mythology; technology & natural studies; zoology; botany & mineralogy; initials & vignettes. Plus a table of contents which really is a more detailed subject index. A remarkable resource for cultural historians, illustrators, artists, and anyone interested in other times. OCLC records 3 copies. The Deutsche Nationalbibliotek has a copy like this one: 1865, 16 + 336 pp. Yale's copy is 1865-1867, 16 + 444 pp. and includes two supplements: illustrations 2558-2854 & 2855-3174. A copy at the NY Public Library is an earlier version, 1863, with a somewhat different title and with 216 pp. and "about 2500" illustrations. Only one copy of this version on line at this writing, in Germany. SALE PRICE through December 31, 2019 (was $800) **Free domestic shipping with direct order. Item #59001
