Jones (Owen). Grammatik der Ornamente. Illustriert mit Mustern von verschiedenen Stylarten der Ornamente. In Hundert und Zwolf Tafeln. Folio, 355 X 230mm, Title + extra title, pp.164 (lacking 1 leaf) + plates, London: Bernard Quaritch, 1868.

Chromolithograph title in pink, yellow and gold, printed title in red and black, many figures in the text. Defective copy lacking one leaf (p.17/18) of introductory text, and with only 70 chromolithograph plates present. Original plum cloth, gutta-percha perished (thus all loose in boards), gold-blocked on the front cover. Spine gilt, but rubbed and rather crudely laid down. A poor copy, priced to reflect its condition
