Book Condition: Near Fine


Variegated red-orange cloth, decorated in gilt, with paper title label mounted on upper spine. Very slight foxing to text block edges and endsheets, slightly age-toned title label, else as issued, appears never read. Original glassine dust wrapper shows only the slightest wear. Original presentation box, cloth-covered boards w/ string tie, shows mildly toned title label and mild loss from silverfishing along two edges of the paper affixed to the underside of the lid and top edge only, a minor cosmetic issue, thus Near Fine. xxix,131,[2] pp. No. 1348 of an edition limited to 1500 copies, signed by the illustrator, Tseng Yu-Ho, on rear colophon. Printed for the Limited Editions Club by the Plantin Press.
