How it works

Register

Facsimile Reprint of the 1865 Edition, with additions. Large reprint folio, hard-cover bound in original dark blue boards (embossed design), unnumbered pages, in original box (damaged and Library marking visible).

Gilt titling to the front board only. Reproductions of Baines' splendid paintings of the Victoria Falls with tissue guards. Although this reprint is not limited, it is estimated that only about 250 copies were produced.

Ten views of the Falls, the Zambesi River and the Gorges with descriptive text by the artist, with new biographical and bibliographical information, plus frontispiece of Thomas Baines.

Now rare, as many copies were sold in Zimbabwe and not likely no longer in existence. Overall, the album is in very good condition.
