Maarssen, Cynophilia, . 4to (29.2 x 22.3 cm). 437 [404, 26, 7] pp., over 400 illustrations. Contemporary red grained morocco over cushioned boards. Presentation copy with gilt title and initials on the front board. Gilt floral endpapers, gilt inner dentelles. All edges gilt. Original pictorial wrappers bound in. In this large and well-illustrated work, the desired profiles and characteristics of domestic dog breeds are described, explained and - above all - beautifully illustrated. Many illustrations are page-sized. In 1897 a French edition was published. Both editions are very rare. The author's name is variously spelled Bylandt and Bijlandt - the former seems to be the preferred spelling. Henri Adriën Graaf van Bylandt (1860-1943) was one of the founders and first chairman of the Dutch cynological society. This is clearly a luxuriously bound presentation copy for "Jhr. Mr. J. W. D. S. B." [The Zeeland judge J. W. D. Schuurbeque Boeije]. Inscribed in the top margin of the front wrapper; inner joints reinforced with red tape; one leaf with light staining and one with some pin-spotting, minimal rubbing to the boards, otherwise a very good, clean copy in a very attractive binding. Artikel-Nr.: 71072.
Deventer, Æ. E. Kluwer, 1904. Two volumes in two. Large 4to (30.0 x 23.5 cm). Two half-titles with engraved vignette, two title pages, two dedication pages (to Prince Hendrik of the Netherlands); and 1678 pp., as follows: Volume I: 24, ix-xvi, 796, A-F; Volume II: 800, xxviii, [xvi (advertisements)]. Contemporary green half-buckram over marbled boards. Spines with gilt bands and title. Yellow endpapers. A very richly illustrated and quite rare, massive work about dog-breeds in the Netherlands, with text in Dutch, English, German and French. The work is divided in two parts: hounds (in the first volume), and other breeds (in the second). The author, Henri Adriën Graaf van Bylandt (1860-1943) was one of the founders and first chairman of the Dutch cynological society. The author's name is variously spelled Bylandt and Bijlandt - the former seems to be the preferred spelling, also used in this work. Pages A-F in volume I contain an index to that volume. Another index, in the rear of volume II, combines both volumes. The first 24 pages in volume I contain reviews of the work, and words of praise. The following - Roman numbered - pages show images of dogs throughout history. Apart from a few other advertisement pages (perhaps indicating a publication in issues), all other - richly illustrated - pages deal with dog breeds. Boards with some shelfwear, a few leaves a bit spotted, but generally clean. A very good, complete set. Artikel-Nr.: 71955.
