About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for The Works of RABELAIS : Dore Edition.

Description:

Early Edition. Association Copy. Research is sketchy and I cannot say for certain that this book was released in 1883, but it certainly looks that way from the best I can deduce. Big thick 12mo in some type of dark red nubbly material that feels and looks like thin leather or skin rather than paper or cloth. Corners and edges have some wear and soil; front and back spine hinge exposed and fabric beginning to split at back. Paper label on spine looks ANCIENT and is moderately chipped; however it can be clearly read as follows: DORE EDITION. THE WORKS OF RABELAIS; WITH NOTES, AND NUMEROUS ILLUSTRATIONS BY GUSTAVE DORE. Price, Ten Shillings and Sixpence. Note: I find no other mention of Chatto printings that have a paper label or a red covering for that matter, so perhaps this has been rebound? Page tops are shiny gilt. Endpapers are dark brown. Frontispiece illustration is covered with original tissue. Sewn gatherings are pretty much intact, although spine covering is loose. For anyone who loves Rabelais and/or Dore, this is a desirable volume to acquire for collector value. The interior is quite nice and the quality and quantity of engravings are unsurpassed. Also, this is an Association Copy, bearing the owner signature of former U.S. Presidential Candidate (1928) Sen. James A. Reed, and was purchased from his estate in Kansas City, Missouri.
