About this Item

Easton Press 1977 leatherbound collector's edition in fine, unread condition. Full charcoal grey leather w/gilt front, back & spine design. Flawless, clean, tight unmarked textblock. All-gilt-edges, bound-in ribbon marker, silk moire endpapers. Archival papers, acid-neutral, especially milled for this edition. Beautiful book, gift or collectible quality. Generously illustrated by French artist Sylvain Sauvage. Frontispiece of Voltaire painted in oils on linen by Charles Attebery. Translated from the French by Richard Aldington. First published by Caron de Beaumarchais in 1759, from a printing press set up outside France at Kehl, because Voltaire's work was outlawed by French authorities, for which reason this celebrated issue of Candide bears the inscription "Edition de Kehl.".
