WOW! This was NOT the binding I was expecting when I opened this box! Somebody (L.O. Cheever?) really loved this book so so so very much that they had an especially fine binding made by the Bayntun (Rivière) Company from Bath, England.  

The illustrations are from George Cruikshank (also famous for illustrating some of Charles Dickens’ works), but these have all been carefully and expertly painted by hand.

The Travels and Surprising Adventures of Baron Munchausen / illustrated with 23 curious engravings from the Baron’s own designs and 5 woodcuts by G. Cruikshank.  London : W. Tegg, 1869.

Bit of fan art for the Spread comic, which is a great horror/sci fi comic by Justin Jordan and Kyle Strahm! Pick it up if you haven’t already :)
