About this Item

12mo. 16.5 by 10.5 cm. clvii, 44, [1] pp. With five hand-colored and illuminated plates, including title, plus illuminated devices and decoration elsewhere. While the plates are printed, the coloring and illumination is such that it is a fine simularcrum of manuscript illumination. This work is in fact a literary hoax, simulating a Medieval Romance but in fact penned by Michel and promoted by the extensive notes and annotations that follow the chronicles. The leaves are a light vellum, and this copy has a resplendent decorative green cloth relief with a rich gilt background that is quite distinctive. Pink moire endpapers. Lovely gilt decoration, including border, on the straight-grained morocco slipcase. A few light fox marks, but essentially clean and mostly pristine. Minor rubbing of the gilt on the spine, and other trivial manifestations of wear. Cloth. Full Straight-Grained Morocco Slipcase. Bookseller Inventory # 004720

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
