One Thousand and One
Initial Letters Designed and Illuminated by Owen Jones,
In this case, the title of the work really says almost
all. Day and Son, Lithographers to Queen Victoria
published this work. There is one unique page for each
letter of the alphabet, with between 30-40 variations,
all beautifully placed on the page. The letters are
lavishly gilded & painted in blues, rose to red and
black. They are very ornate. The colors are very fresh
and vivid with absolutely no wear on the gilt and the
paper heavy quality stock, still strong & bright. The
condition of the plates is good, with some scattered
foxing, which we have accepted since these plates have
become exceedingly rare.
Each print measures approximately 11 1/4 inches wide by
16 1/2 inches long. At the foot of each initial is
printed “London, Chromolithographed and Published April
1st 1864, by Day & Son Lithrs to the Queen and H.R.H.
The Prince of Wales”. This was Queen Victoria. The
sheen on the gilding was hard to show in the
photographs, but it is very pleasing. There is no
fading of the letters of the gilding, so any unevenness
is in the photos. These make a truly wonderful and
unique gift to celebrate the naming of a child, a
marriage, or an anniversary.
