THE CITIES OF UMBRIA

by

Edward Hutton

1st Edition 1905

 

This attractively illustrated book provides both a history and guide to Umbria and its cities.

The book is in three sections:

Impressions of the Cities of Umbria - Perugia, Assisi, Spello, Foligno and Montefalco, Spoleto, the Road to Narni, Todi, Orvieto, Citta della Pieve, Gurbio and the Furlo Pass, Urbino.

The Umbrian School of Painting - Umbrian Art, Piero della Francesca, Melozzo da Forli, Luca Signorelli, Benedetto Bonfigli, Fiorenzo di Lorenzo, Perugino, Pintoricchio.

Umbrian Mystica - Joachim di Flore, St. francis of Assisi, St, Clare, Brother Bernard, Brother Elias.

Published by Methuen & Co. in 1905, first UK edition. In blue boards with gold titling and decoration on the spine, the book measures approx. 7 3/4" x 5 1/4" with xvi and 303 pages, 20 illustrations in colour and 12 other illustrations. There is also a 40 page publisher's catalogue dated October 1905.

The book is only in good condition as there is shelf wear with some staining on the boards. The spine ends and corners and there is bubbling to the cloth on both boards near the spine edge and other edges.

Internally the book is tight and clean but does suffer from foxing to most of the pages. This is generally light to moderate but a few pages are more heavily affected, including the endpapers and half-title page. The front free endpaper has been removed and there is an inscription on the half-title page.
