Chromo-lithograph; This book is in Very Good condition and is lacking the scarce dust jacket. The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. The gilt lettering on the front cover of the book has faded somewhat and is dulled. The text pages are clean and bright. The interior hinges have been strengthened. This copy includes alternating full color and monochrome illustrations by Arthur C. And Harry Payne. "The brothers Payne grew up in London, England in the mid 1800's and were best known for series of oilette illustrations they created for postcard companies, including Raphael Tuck & Sons and Gale and Poldon. The brothers switched to lithography and chromo-lithography for the illustrations accompanying this famous poem by Robert Browning. "
