A beautiful book, number 175 of 550 copies, finely bound and wonderfully illustrated. Full color frontispiece and numerous plates and vignettes, many of them tinted various colors. Each plate and even each vignette is tissue protected. The full morocco binding hardly worn at all, and the contents of this volume are bright and almost fresh. Large paper copy. Five raised bands on spine. Lavish gilt work on spine and covers, which are ruled in an intricate geometric pattern. Two tone brown and lighter brown leather. Top edge gilt with gilt turn ins. Square and tight binding with hinges and joints as strong as day of issue. Lavender colored silk page marker ribbon. Books like this are hardly made anymore, and if trhey are they are pricey indeed. While not cheap, these antiique Beaux Art editions of well known authors of the era are among the best bargains in the book marketplace. Even the leather bound ones as is this one. A superb blending of fine binding, fine at, and sublime prose. This title, though printed in Paris, is translated from the original French into English. Have others in the Beaux Arts series of the same style binding. Size: Quarto, 117pp. Bookseller Inventory # 2854
