Hardcover, red genuine leather binding, decorated in gold with raised spine. All edges gilt, scarlet silk moire end-papers and silk ribbon marker bound-in. Printed on archival acid-neutral paper. 313 pages. Introduction by Robert Gorham Davis. Illustrations from paintings by James Hill. First Easton Press edition thus. A title in the 100 Greatest Books Ever Written series, Collector’s Edition. No previous ownership marks. Significant loss to gold stamping, especially on rear cover, albeit spine near like new. A sound, clean, internally unmarked copy. Good.
