About this Item

This edition of Stendhal's novel about political corruption set during the time of General Bonaparte's invasion of Italy was published in 1827. This edition is limited to 1500 copies, and carries the translation of Lady Mary Lloyd, revised by Robert Cantwell. Opening the volume is the long and thoughtful essay on Stendahl's work by his contemporary Honor? de Balzac that was first published in La Revue Parisienne on 25 September 1840 under the title, "A Study of M. Beyle." Written for an audience which did not know the works of this then obscure novelist, this introduction is one of the most celebrated literary homages of one great writer by another. Illustrator Rafaello Busoni created the book's numerous in-text and nine full-page lithographs in two colors, and signed the colophon. Designer George Macy chose a monotype Cochin font to be used at the Printing House of Leo Hart, and decreed a binding of imported cream linen stamped in brown, with French handmade marbled paper sides in various hues of brown. Small folio (26.6 cm, 10.438"). [3], frontis., [2], vii?xx, 392, [2] pp.; 9 plts. Bibliography of the Fine Books Published by The Limited Editions Club, 261. In original slipcase; some soiling and spots generally, with shelf-scrape marks; sturdy and on shelf satisfactory. Of the well-protected book, a near-fine copy, with the newsletter and retained half of the order form laid in. Bookseller Inventory # 29120
