Facsimile Prints. Each is preserved in a poly sleeve with a board insert.

I have learned that when the book was first published in 1884 it was released in separate chapters with the corresponding prints.  Subscribers would have the individual chapters and prints bound into book form. Accordingly, loose chapters and prints are very rare. I was told that there is only three sets in the United States. The facsimile prints that I offer are from one of the original loose sets.


Facsimile prints are $20.00 each or 4/ $50.00

Prints are approximately 8.5 by 11 inches. Shipping is $5.00 for one or more in the United States. Shipping to an address outside the United States must be by Priority Mail.
