Full title: Álbum descriptivo del ejército y la Armada de España. Published by tres oficiales del ejército. Luxury Edition
Authors: Three army officers, as the title dictates, although their names do not appear on a first reading. With 32 high-quality colour lithographs. The author of the drawings is Soria Santa Cruz and the author of the chromolithographs J.M Madrid
Published in 1884 at the Imprenta de Fortanet in Madrid. With 118 pages plus 32 lithographic plates.
Hardcover binding of embossed fabric with metal sheet in the corners. Studs on the cover and back cover and gold on the cover and spine. Condition: The binding has a lot of wear, and some tearing especially in the edge. Also dirt. The pages, some of the first ones with some tearing the rest in an acceptable condition. The lithographs quite well although not all have the protective tissue paper. In general, the copy is quite good except for the flaws of the binding. (See images, they are part of the description)
We have only found a whole specimen on the market and it is somewhat more battered than this one we offer. We understand that few complete copies have arrived to this day because the quality of the lithographs has been a very attractive temptation to strip the book.
Very interesting for collectors and students of the military.
It will be shipped perfectly packed and insured.
