"Sunny Memories of Ireland's Scenic Beauties Killarney", published by F.H. Mares, dated 1867.

9" tall, green cloth wrapped decorated boards, text block gilt all side, title page decoration embellished with gold lettering, photographs are actual photographic paper pasted to pages, not paginated.

This is a "good" antique book with intact binding but weakened hinges. No loose or torn or folded pages. Some light foxing and spotting in places. I am not entirely sure, but the front free end paper looks to be adhered to the front paste down because the book opens immediately to the title page and what appears to be the paste down is of the same paper type as the other pages, yet looking at the back of the book, free end paper and the paste down are different color. The pages are lightly waved due to the photos being of a glossy paper and having been pasted to each page. The front cover cloth is a little lifted in some places and there is some spotting to the cloth (see accompanying images). The board corners are worn and show the underlying board.

Overall, while not perfect, it is complete, the photos are rather stunning and it is a pleasing book.

Apparently a rather scarce title, as I saw only three similar books being offered online. Of note: This copy is the only one available that has 15 photographs (see image of the table of contents) as all of the others have just 12 images.

The images contained with accompanying descriptions on each following page:
>> General View of the Lakes >> Ross Castle >> Lower Lake from Innisfallen >> O'Sullivan's Cascade >> Glena Bay >> Brickeen Bridge >> The Middle, or Torc Lake >> Muckross Abbey >> Torc Cascade >> Landing Place at Dinis Island >> The Old Weir Bridge >> Eagle's Nest Mountain >> The Upper Lake >> The Black Valley >> The Gap of Dunloe

Will ship carefully packaged and fully insured, US only please.
