Product Description

One of 300 paper copies, bound in vellum with silk ties. The “Note to the reader” is present. The vellum is slightly discoloured, the book has probably been stored in slightly damp conditions and the vellum has bowed, the silk ties are frayed at the ends and the middle tie has loss to the ends both at the front and rear, the bottom tie has lost its lower end. The text block is slightly toned with minor spots of foxing and a name and reference stamped to the front endpaper, the pages have what might be referred to as a loose wave corresponding with the movement of the vellum.
