About this Item

Limited first edition of 750 copies, numbered and signed by the artist. Illustrated with 25 beautiful plates in color by Edward J. Detmold, including two extra plates not found in the trade edition. Thick folio, publisherís original full white polished buckram, the upper cover artfully decorated with the original gilt pictorial designs surrounded by a frame ruled in gilt and filled with intertwined vines, the spine handsomely gilt lettered and decorated with gilt device and gilt rules, t.e.g., housed and protected in the original slipcase. A fine copy with just very light age mellowing at the spine panel, the corners fine and sharp, the plates all in excellent condition, the text-block clean and white, essentially a near as pristine copy in a protective slipcase. The slipcase with some wear as would be expected. The book profiting by the presence of the slipcase, with the white cloth remaining clean and the giltwork very bright. FIRST EDITION, LIMITED, SIGNED, NUMBERED AND SPECIALLY BOUND. This title represents, in our opinion, Detmold's very best work. The grace and sensitivity of the illustrations reflect a certain Eastern sensibility. The artistís powers in the delicate communication of natureís spirit are exemplified by these wonderful paintings, rich with the wide variety of the colours in the spectrum. This is a very fine copy of the best printing of the work, numbered and signed by Detmold. Bookseller Inventory # 25107
