About this Item

N.d., 1839. 4to, large paper version and one of ten copies on chine-tiree. 27 by 18 cm, or 10.5 by 7 inches. xii, 344 pp. 90 vignettes and 17 tinted plates. Lovely version of classic morality tale of self-destruction flowing from ill-starred passion between minor young aristocrat and luxury loving Manon who flee to the New World (Louisiana). Basis for two major operas by Massenet and Puccini, through which it is probably better known nowadays. One plate heavily foxed. Otherwise generally clean. Red Morocco is vibrant. Some rubbing on spine bands and extremities. Box has light wear and rubbing along edges but still has structural integrity and makes for a highly attractive package with its inner and outer marbled papers. Bookseller Inventory # 001809

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.
