Jones, Owen, The Grammar of Ornament, London, Studio Editions, 1987, first British facsimile edition, folio (13.25" x 9.5"), HB, navy cloth boards w/ gilt titles in navy/gilt & color pictorial dj, VG+/ VG+. Small blue sticker to blue ffep, two small punctures on bottom corner of front board, slight wear to foot of spine resulting in minor color loss. DJ has 2 small closed tears..

Illustrated by examples from various styles of ornament. 157 pp. text + plates. 112 color plates (versos blank). A very decent facsimile reprint of the Owen Jones 1856 classic - faithful to the dazzling original chromolithography, save for the difficulty presented to the modern printer that over-gilding presents. The Victorian obsession with pattern and decoration resulted in Jones' seminal survey of ornament, pattern and design motifs from various cultures throughout history - from the ancient Egyptians to 19th-Century Europeans - and is today an invaluable and comprehensive design reference.
