[PARKER (John Henry)].

A Glossary of Terms used in Grecian, Roman, Italian, and Gothic Architecture. The Second Edition, Enlarged. Exemplified by Four Hundred Wood-Cuts.

Woodcut frontispiece, 67 plates and vignettes in the text.

8vo. [221 x 133 x 26 mm]. vi, [ii], 144 pp. Bound in half vellum, recent red cloth sides, smooth spine divided into five panels by onlaid strips of red goatskin tooled in gilt and flanked by gilt fillets, lettered in the second panel on a red goatskin shield-shaped label and at the foot on a red onlay, the first, third and fifth with green goatskin onlays tooled with gothic arches, the fourth with a red hexagonal onlay with decoration, marbled endleaves, red edges.
London: printed by T. Combe and Co. in Leicester for Charles Tilt, J. H. Parker in Oxford, and T. Combe & Co, 1838

First published in 1836. Plates 34, 38 and 45 were numbered twice, and 47 and 51 were omitted in the numbering. A few spots, but a very good copy. The decoration of the spine is unusual and attractive. The cloth on the sides appears to have been renewed - unless it has remained almost as good as new.
