About this Item

The Primrose Edition, No. 488 of 999 sets; limitation page designed by Dwiggins and SIGNED by the editor, Robert Arnot, in Volume I. A very handsome set, in full-leather "Saint Dunstan Binding" (stamped thus on spines). An elaborately decorated style of binding, variously attributed to Samuel Mearn, of Charles II's court, or to Louis Douceur, of Louis XV's court. Leather is of various colors but the spine decorations are identical; decorations on the covers vary from volume to volume and most have two or three colors, in imitation of leather inlay (which this is not). Overall, good+ only. Scars and darkening to front pastedown of each volume from removed bookplate; boards bowed; edges bumped and worn; corners and spine ends worn. Front hinges of volumes I, IV, XIII, and XIX are starting, v.I starting at p. vi-vii as well. Spines of volumes V-VII, X-XIV, and XV-XVI heavily faded; spines of v.III, IV, XVII, and XVIII lightly faded; the very edges of the boards for v.X-XIV faded. Spine tail of v.V and VI chipped; spine head of v.XII chipped at top; small tear to spine head of v.VIII. Volumes VI, VII, and XV have small scars on the spines; very edges of v.V and VI worn to boards in places; two gouges to front board of v.XV; v.XVI has splatter stains on spine; v.XIX has a scratch on rear board. All plates are present and represent some very fine work; in addition to the inimitable Dwiggins, there are many plates by the great Herman Roundtree and additional contributions by Frederick Morgan, Francis Vaux Wilson, and George Alfred Williams. This set will definitely cost extra to ship, as we will take special care in wrapping these delicate volumes and it will probably require several boxes. Bookseller Inventory # 11726
