Published 1938, Prague, Czech Republic by Frantisek Glos.
c. 100 Pages. Text in Czech. Illustrated throughout. Limited Edition, numbered copy.
Period 1/4 leather binding, wooden boards, slightly raised bands, gilt title lettering, large metallic knobs on covers, in original slip case.
Limited edition, #26 of a no doubt very small print run. Scarce European imprint in an interesting and unusual binding style which mimics much earlier bindings of the pre-modern era.
Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Book is not new or in "new" condition.
Binding only very gently age worn, leather slightly rubbed but still supple, remains overall attractive as an object.
Text block paper is gently toned, internally still well preserved, clean, tight, sound.
Still attractive on the shelf. Book displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
Please review photos for more detail and our best attempt to convey how this pre-WW II European book survives.
