382 pages. Text in French. Frontis portrait protected by original tissue guard. Retains original paper cover bound into the volume.

Limited Edition, 1/ 530 examples.

Attractive antiquarian 1/2 grained morocco leather binding, raised bands, gilt title lettering, marbled covers & end papers, deckled edges. 1926 owners inscription on blank fly leaf.

Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. 

Binding gently age worn but still appealing, leather and joints slightly rubbed but still supple, remains overall very attractive as an object.

Text block paper is gently age toned as typical, some light widely scattered spotting seen throughout, 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 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.

Book Measures c. 7 1/2" H x 5 1/2" W.
