Gunn, Maurice James.
Print Restoration and Picture Cleaning.

London The Bazaar, Exchange and Mart: 1922. 2nd edition, revised.

"An illustrated practical guide to the restoration of all kinds of prints -together with chapters on cleaning water-colors, print 'fakes' and their detection, anomalies in print values, and prints to collect". Of major interest to today's collector for two reasons- first, as a guide to the state of the art a century ago, and an aid in determining what might have been done to that antique print you are puzzling over secondly, as an interesting text on fakes and frauds in print selling during that collecting era. The second edition of this classic text.

Hardcover. 6"x9", vi + 168 pages, plus 18 b/w plates publisher's blue covers lightly worn.
