    BEP Vignettes and Portraits Book

    Bureau of Engraving and Printing Vertically Formatted Presentation Vignettes and Portraits Book ND circa 1870s.
    Approximately 140 portraits and vignettes are found in this impressive leather-bound gilt edge BEP produced book. It was originally presented to a dignitary during the Grant Administration as the latest presidential portrait is of President Grant. Many of the portraits and vignettes can be found on United States paper money and other fiscal items. The covers show scuffing through normal use and the pages exhibit the usual foxing. The inside covers and their adjoining pages are modern replacements and they match its modern protective slipcase. We have auctioned one of these previously that was very similar. It realized $5,462 in January, 2006. Look for this worthwhile addition to any serious collector's library to hammer in that vicinity, if not more.
