BEAUTY AND THE BEAST with Original Illustrations by H.L. Stephens. Printed in Oil Colors by J. Bien.

NY / Boston: Hurd & Houghton / E. P. Dutton, 1866 (1865). Second printing? Original brown cloth stamped in gilt and blind; octavo (6 x 8 inches); [1], 16 pp., frontispiece and 5 chromolithograph plates. Minor bumps to corners, one third of front free endpaper torn away, some foxing and light staining to plate margins and text, contents slightly shaken, still a presentable copy near very good. Item #23226

Julius Bien's chromolithographs after H.L. Stephens' originals have a rather unfinished look and are not nearly so fine as the chromolithographs of Audubon's work he produced in 1860. Still, a scarce and fairly early American juvenile illustrated with chromolithography.

Price: $250.00
