Oblong paperback. Over 80 full-page b/w and sepia images many tissue protected. Text in English/German/French and Dutch; the numbering of the plates is 1-115 but there are 34 plates which are not present, which seems also to be true of other copies of this book. There is no space in the binding for these extra plates, which suggests either that this was an error in the original printing, or that not all the numbered pictures were supposed to be included. It has been suggested that the numbering is not pages but refers to the frame numbers of the original paintings; whatever the reason, in this book the 'missing' pages/plates are 2, 7, 17, 40, 64-70, 72, 74, 77-79, 81, 87, 92, 97-110, 114. Page 76 is at the front and page 73 is between pages 36 and 38 but is possibly a misprint for page 37. No date of publication, but circa 1900. Pictorial pastedown on front cover. Full refund if not satisfied.
