About this Item

Large 8vo, pp. xiii, 55. Translated from the French by Jacques LeClercq. Preface by Francis de Miomandre. Paper over boards, with affixed label on front, spine stamped in gilt. Outer corners of cover slightly scuffed, o/w near fine in somewhat worn tissue dj. Note in rear reads: "This manuscript was originally written by Maurice Robert and published under the title "Code de la Bibliophilie Moderne" by the Union Latine d'Editions in Paris. It was translated, by Jacques Le Clercq, into English and then underwent a thorough revision at the hands of Frederic Warde, who sought to make the phraseology more intelligible to American collectors and prepared a new list of "Terms" particularly intended for the American collector. This book was designed by Frederic Warde, printed in the Bembo types by the Printing-Office of the Yale University Press, and bound by the Russell-Rutter Comapny. Bookseller Inventory # 55097
