This is not a bilingual edition. Text in Italian only, not in English. First edition, presumed first printing, 20 November 1963. Printed and presumed bound in Switzerland, except that the color plates and the heliograph illustrations were produced in Tokyo. Gorgeous nubby, linen-like cloth in eggshell, with crisp brown-stamped Japanese characters to the front board and crisp brown-stamped lettering to the spine. Unbumped spine head and tail, with sharp corners. The binding is impressively clean. 14.25 x 10.25 inches. Text block firmly bound in. With 192 numbered pages, including six pages of front text, scores of full-page illustrations, and ten pages of rear text. Several of the illustrations are in full color. All pages are heavy-weight matte stock. An exceptionally clean volume, and rather tight, with scant evidence of shelf life. Very gently read. No remainder marks. Lovely full-pictorial color DJ, unclipped, very lightly rubbed and with an evenly sunned spine. Housed in a simple light-duty slipcase. A Near Fine copy in a Very Good Plus DJ in a Very Good Minus slipcase.
