The work of Illumination was commenced on the 1st day of May & terminated on the 1st day of December in the Year of our Lord MDCCCXLV. HNH [i.e. Henry Noel Humphreys]"--Colophon.
Page 1 on verso of t.p. Title and text in illuminated borders in gold and colors, by H.N. Humphreys.
Bound in one of the first papier mâché bindings designed to look like carved ebony. Back and front covers have the same 9-panel design. In each of the four corner panels there is a wreath containing the head of an angel, a lion, an eagle or an ox, representing Gospel authors Matthew, Mark, John and Luke. Stylized oak leaves occupy the middle panels of the top, bottom and sides. The central panel shows a sower within a wreath around which two ribbons are wrapped on a staff. "Scripture Parables" appears on the ribbons in raised Gothic letters. Leather spine and hinges. All edges gilt.
The papier mâché binding is the same as the London ed. but the chromolithographs in this New York ed. are slightly different from the chromolithographs in the London ed.
Description: [32] pages : color illustrations ; 17 cm
