About this Item

This is a bit of a curiosity. The prior owner photocopied a very lengthy article from Osiris, a journal on the history of science which George Sarton edited, and had it bound professionally. The boards are covered with a cream buckram, and there is a handsome red label with gold stamping. The endpapers are wonderful sea-green marbled paper. Inside, the book is quite pristine, and it runs to more than 200 pages, each printed on only one side. The photocopying was pre-laser, but it is sharp enough for the many pages of incunabula that are reproduced to be entirely legible, although of course their immense beauty is quite blunted. The owner's handsome bookplate graces the front endpaper. Bookseller Inventory # 17142
