About this Item

Signed. I just read this for the first tme this year. Although Lytton has a bad rep for "purple prose", for the most part his flourishes work very well, and he can delve into his characters' inner life with a keen psychological eye. His entrancement with Pompeii is evident on nearly every page, and this book if nothing else is a grand introduction to Roman daily life. The edition I read frankly had better illustrations, but the type was mediocre. This finely printed edition has exquisite typography, printed by Giovanni Mardersteig at the Oficina Bodoni. The decorations and illustrations are by Kurt Craemer. Both printer & illustrator have signed the colophon. #978 of 1500 copies. Fine book, DJ has faintly toned spine. Slipcase moderate smudging & wear but structurally intact. Newsletter laid in. Extra postage required for international shipping: please inquire before ordering. Bookseller Inventory # mon0000102902
