Pretty decorated book "Characteristics of Women", by Mrs. Jameson, and published circa 1900 by William H. Appleton of New York City.

This volume is a Victorian study of the personality and attributes of women, drawn from Shakespeare's characters, including Lady Macbeth, Portia, Octavia, Cleopatra, Desdemona, and Juliet, among others.

There are 24 gorgeous steel engravings depicting the various lady being discussed.

This is a really nice copy of a scarce edition of this interesting Victorian tome. The boards are covered in rich green calf leather, embossed and decorated front and back. There is some edge, particularly on the bottoms of the board edges, and some to the lower ridges on the spine. The textblock is handsomely and heavily gilded on all edges, with some light dents in places. There does not appear to be any writing, folded pages or tears internally. There is some foxing in places, although not significant.

A super nice book that will make a great addition to your collection or as a gift for your Victorian or Shakespeare buff!
