Dewey's The Colored Fruit Book: For Use of Nurserymen 1860: 64 colored plates of apples, pears, other fruit and flowers. Chromolithographs, pochoirs and other examples. This was a sample catalogue given out to traveling salesmen that had examples of products on stock plates that were produced by Dewey. Each copy had the salesman's name on the front. This copy has the name "Frank Ford". The cover is loose from the book, with very light foxing. This is truly an excellent example and in wonderful condition. A beautiful book. A very rare book especially in this condition.
