    London: Mr Mitchell, Publisher to the Queen, Chromo-Lithographed by Day & Son, no date [ca.1860s]. Original red bevel edge cloth lettered and decorated in gilt and blind. Modern rebacking of matching red morocco, gilt titled, cloth inner hinges. 25 colour plates on 13 heavy leaves, all edges gilt. Some professional repairs at outer corners and edges of covers; small chip at bottom edge of front free endpaper; scattered foxing to margins but only a few of the plates show any foxing at all; separation at fore edge of two leaves (a very easy repair if desired); else a VG tight copy, plates bright and clean. The leaves (all but the last) have a colour plate on each side mounted within a heavy card frame, two frames joined to make each leaf. >>> Old ink inscription on front free endpaper "Given to my Father, Rev Rufus W. Clark, D.D. at Albany, N.Y. - January first - 1868 by General Stephen Van Rensselaer." Tipped in at inner edge of one leaf (the other is loose) is a two page letter signed from Stephen Van Rensselaer to Clarke dated 1 Jan., 1868, headed "Manor House", with his printed monogram, 8 x 5 inches, folded twice, short tears to two folds, else fine. The text is in a secretarial hand, which perhaps isn't such a pity. as Ms Clark was confused about which Van Rensselaer gave the book to her father. It has to have been Stephen Van Rensselar IV (1789-1868), one of the largest land-holders in New York, the son of the distinguished War of 1812 general and politician Stephen Van Rensselaer III (1764-1839). IV found himself involved a the 30 year Anti-Rent Wars when the estate was divided. Van Rensselaer IV writes "Dear Doctor, Among the many books I have overlooked, this one I send is the most artistic & beautiful in design & in execution. The title alone renders it somewhat inappropriate, as never has God's enchanted sun shine beamed more fully upon a family, than upon yours.....Your, aged friend, S.V Rensselaer" ( the text body, in a secretarial hand, is in sepia ink, the signature in black ink). In pencil lightly on the back of the tipped in leaf is "This book belongs to Eliza W. Clark" >>> Biblical calligraphed texts with fancy illustrated borders, illustrated and decorated initials (some in gilt). Inspired by the medieval illuminated manuscript, but thoroughly High Victorian, a striking example. COPAC locates only one copy, at the Nat. Lib. of Scotland. WorldCat finds three - at Cal. State, Stanford, and Delaware. Note: heavy book, please enquire for shipping rate.
