About this Item

The LEC's second go-around with Confucius's Analects, improving dramatically on the first attempt; the Club newsletter notes ruefully that the original production, while nicely bound, featured poor typography and "unimaginative" illustrations. Both issues are corrected here, in a clearly and boldly presented volume designed and printed by Saul Marks at the Plantin Press. The text was translated from the Chinese and supplied with an introduction and notes by Dr. Lionel Giles; the 12 virtue-inspired paintings were done in oil paints and silver by Tseng Yu-Ho ? herself a descendant of one of Confucius's disciples ? with her commentary on the images included at the back of the volume. Marks set the text in Ehrhardt and Perpetua on Curtis wove antique paper, and selected for the binding a mottled red linen silk-screened in gilt with a Chinese-inspired pattern. This is => numbered copy 44 of 1500 printed, signed at the colophon by the artist. The appropriate LEC newsletter is laid in. 8vo (28.2 cm, 11.2"). xxvii, [5], 131, [3] pp.; 12 col. plts. Bibliography of the Fine Books Published by the Limited Editions Club, 428. Binding as above, with imported Chinese wood veneer spine label, in a Chinese-style tan buckram?covered box; box with one button for tie lacking and a few small smudges to spine, volume pristine. A very nice copy. Bookseller Inventory # 36294
