Description: Jones, Owen. THE GRAMMAR OF ORNAMENT. London: Day and Son, 1856. Folio (22.5" x 14.5"). With chromolithographed title, 100 plates, and other plain illustrations in-text. Bound in original 1/2 morocco over green boards with leather label to front in gilt. A large and heavy volume with flaws typical of such: binding pulled from text-block and leaves detached (block broken) but all present and generally quite clean. A few marginal chips, and some marginal closed tears in places throughout (most quite short, none approaching text or plates.) Binding shows some rubbing and scuffing. *********************************** First edition of this striking decorative work. Jones was a British architect and one of the most influential design theorists of the 1800s. The present work is divided into chapters which describe and illustrate ornamentation from around the world (including Egyptian, Greek, Pompeian, Arabian, Turkish, Moresque, Persian, Indian, and Chinese.)
