About this Item

The Nonesuch Press edition from 1939 of Voltaire's masterpiece. Translated from the French by Richard Aldington and introduced by Paul Morand. Attractively bound in burgundy and a dark yellow with a decorative motif front and back and a faded, toned spine. My late father's name on the front overleaf and a bookplate inside the front cover. No other damage or marks. The color illustrations by Sauvage are wonderful. The publisher provided slip cover is worn and has some seam separations but is generally good.
