DELUXE ISSUE ON INDIA PAPER

COOKE, W.B. & George Views on the Thames With COOKE, W.B. & George DESCRIPTIONS OF VIEWS ON THE THAMES

W.B. Cooke, 1822.

Together two volumes. The Views the deluxe large paper issue with mounted plates printed on India paper. Folio (370 x 265mm). Half contemporary green morocco over morocco grained cloth boards with marbled end papers. All edges gilt. The Description, octavo, separately bound in contemporary half red morocco. Seventy-five steel engraved plates printed on India paper in the volume of views. Very good copies, minor wear to corners, internally fresh.

This work builds on Cooke's 1811 work on the Thames.
"Of the 84 plates based on Samuel Owen's drawings of the 1811 edition 38 are retained in 1822, all re-engraved and transformed by W.B. Cooke whose style had been romanticized through his work for Turner and his association with Peter de Wint. The etched shades are now blacker, more highlights are introduced, skies are eventful with massing clouds and flights of birds, and the foliage has become less stylized." - Adams (London Illustrated 1604-1851)
Initially issued in parts, between 1815-1822, and then as a single volume, it was available in three states, Royal Quarto (£8), Imperial Quarto with proof impressions (£12) and "a small number to be taken off on India paper, first proofs" (£15).
"The 'de-luxe' edition, with illustrations on India paper, was clearly intended to supplant the older, standard work on Thames scenery, Boydell's History of the Thames." - Adams
