About this Item

Hardcover bound in stamped brown leather. One of 1500 copies from the Limited Editions Club SIGNED on limitation page at rear by artist Miguel Covarrubias and hand-numbered "1414." Title blindstamped on spine. Linear bindstamp pattern wraps around from front to rear board. Sturdy binding and pristine pages, except for a thin rim of darkening on front free endpage. Front board and spine have what appear to be a small burn on them, not unattractive, though definitely a flaw, which Covarrubias's six full-page color illustrations and many line drawings amply make up for. Lacking the slipcase. Narrow folio. 120 pp. including a one-page glossary of African words. Heavy--may require additional postage if shipped abroad. Bookseller Inventory # 78073
