About this Item

No. 4 of 8, and one of five on Japanese vellum. 8vo. 345 pp. An extraordinary copy illustrated at the beginning and end of each chapter with original watercolors by de Crauzat, who signed his illustrations. Together with a full page title watercolor, de Crauzat did 25 for this work. These illustrations capture perfectly the sentimental romance of the story itself, and each lays fair claim to being a miniature masterpiece. For an artist as accomplished as this de Crauzat to undertake such a project is truly unique, and thus this copy is special in the wider universe of published fiction literature. The binding, too, is an object of beauty with inlays of floral detail into the gilt spine decoration. The half green morocco has one flaw -- the front board has been reattached at the hinge, and the repair is apparent to the eye. Minor wear to the binding elsewhere. FFEP is cracked by hinge. Otherwise, interior is clean and tight. Bookseller Inventory # 002331

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.
