Twelve volumes solidly bound in six folio size books. Red leather-like cloth with spine titles stamped in gold. Title pages bound in. Each volume has a description ( in Spanish ) and index to the 84 plates that follow. Plates are mostly monochromatic, but many are in color as well. Addresses all aspects of Spanish decoration, architectural exteriors and interiors, decorative motifs, iron work, tile, doors, ceilings, furniture, church architecture, altarpieces and even ceremonial religious garments. Each book contains two volumes, and each volume has 84 plates with the exception of the last volume, which is a combined volume with 128 plates total. Ownership signature and date (1941) on all front end-papers, and each volume has the owners initials on spine indicating that the set was likely bound-up in 1941. Some toning to text pages; plates are clean and nice. Some light general wear with some rubbing to spine ends and edges. End-papers on last volume have small abrasions- something taped, then removed maybe? Very solid sewn bindings make this set an ideal reference. Very heavy set (about 50lbs) not practical to ship overseas. No additional charge for domestic media mail, but priority, fed-ex, etc. will be more.
