Vie de Jeanne D'Arc, by LeMaire.
Published 1818, Paris by Le Prieur.
235 pages. Text in English. Engraved frontispiece, plus three other engraved plate.
Attractive antiquarian full leather binding, smooth spine, gilt bands & compartment decorations, gilt ruled covers.
Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. A rare book in any condition.
Binding well age worn but still appealing, lower front cover corner well chewed, leather and joints cracked and scuffed, front cover loosened, spine leather chipped at ends, remains overall very attractive as an object.
Text block paper is gently age toned as typical, internally book remains mostly clean, tight and sound. A book which has been taken care of but may/ does not look like new.
Still attractive on the shelf. Book displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in rather nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws seem easy to overlook or forgive.
Please review photos for more detailed attempt to present this rare book as it survives.
We often over-describe any flaws that many sellers would not even bother to mention since most people would overlook them as minor and unworthy of comment. Many people tell us the books they receive from us are nicer in person than it appears on the screen. We want you to be clear about what you are buying, so we take clear photos and try to describe it clearly.
