About this Item

This is No. IX of 15 copies produced "hors commerce" intended for the collaborators on the project and of a total limitation of 205 copies. The leaves in this copy are of a heavy card. 4to. 32 by 25 cm. Unpaginated. 42 leaves, with full page plates blank on versos and other leaves, including ones with illustrations, printed on both sides. The animal illustrations are very much of the best "Animalier" tradition, as in Bayre, Bonheur and the like, with a fine attention to detail without fussiness and a freedom of hand that captures compelling a sense of movement. The illustrations complement and augment perfectly the already classic verses about wild animals of de Lisle. Scarce, with the only copy located on OCLC FirstSearch in the Bibliotheque Nationale. One early page with heavy foxing on its bottom half; otherwise, mostly clean, even pristine, with light wear to the full calf binding. Bookseller Inventory # 003849

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.
