About this Item

1906, a numbered set from a limited edition of 1000. (Hardcover set) Fine. An exquisite set from the "Edition Immortal" bound in various colors of leather. This set is No.3 with an elaborate certificate signed by W.E. Wise. Each volume stamped in gilt and color after original designs of famous fine bindings (most with a descriptive page tipped in). Faux moire endpapers, top edges gilt, ribbon page markers, illustrated with photogravures on Japan Vellum, including hand-painted reproductions of famous historical paintings and rare engravings. Each volume has a tastefully designed bookplate on the front inner board, and the only flaw on the set being that the spines of 11 volumes are lightly faded (some to a pale green, some to a light tan). Because the volumes are bound in different colors, this is not an offensive fault. Photos available on request. (Sets, History, Sets). Bookseller Inventory # 142151
