About this Item

Limited deluxe edition, one of 190, although this copy is not actually numbered. Oblong, 24 by 33 cm. 18 numbered leaves in each of the two parts, and a total of 28 fables rendered. The leaves are of Tori-noko papier japonais and are folded over in the Japanese-style. While the source of the tales and the publisher are French, the book is a fine expression of Japonisme that swept the Western World in the late 19th century and is very much in the style of a Kobunsha or Hasegawa publication of the same period. Light wear to binding. Quarter Calf. Japanese paper pastedown. Leather title label. Bookseller Inventory # 004196

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.
