This edition was limited to 1,500 numbered copies, of which 500 were reserved for the USA. This is copy No. 514. T.E.G. With xx and 20 numbered pages of text. Followed by 152 plates, many of which are full page, most in color and the remainder in B&W. Almost all the plates with tissue guards, and the plates and guards are in near fine condition. 11.25 x 8.75 inches. Half-parchment, including the spine and the corners. Crisp gilt-stamped lettering to the spine. The boards with a gorgeous Japan-paper in a striated design of orange and forest green. The boards are very thick. Virtually no shelf rubbing along the bottom edge of the boards, and with minor rubbing here and there along the fore edge and the top edge. The off-white parchment generally in fine condition. The text block is bound in with exceptional sturdiness. There is a red, so-called "chop" mark to the title page from a previous owner, to a handsome effect, with #2/1 under it in a neat blue ink hand. On the rear pastedown in the lower corner appears a very small and discreet paste-on stamp from a San Francisco bookseller. Else a very clean copy, and rather tight. Gently read. A Very Good copy. Scarce in any condition. Somewhat rare and hard to find, at least in this condition.
