About this Item

Original stiff paper (card stock) binding with beveled front edges made to resemble velum; ornate printed decoration on the front cover. The spine is now worn and heavily chipped. This little gem of a book is identified a one of 925 copies printed on high quality paper, deckle-edged, red and black printing on title page. An elegant book with some underlined passages on a few pages. This prompted a previous owner to very carefully paste a typewritten (manual) note on the inside front cover which reads: "The markings in this book are not mine. I note this not so much for your benefit as for mine own in those years to come when I shall have forgotten the circumstance of its purchase. Also Gentle Borrower lest you forget to return it and suspicion rest on you as the owner of a book so cruelly disfigured." Clearly the book belonged to a bibliophile; it's not really "disfigured" and remains a lovely little object enhanced by the charming note left in the book along with the remnants of a lime-green book mark ribbon.
