Facsimile edition. Copy No. 796 of an edition of 1000 copies. ii, 554 pp. Bound in cream Nigerian goatskin to a decorative gilt binding design from a copy bound by T. J. Cobden-Sanderson at the Doves Bindery in 1900. In a cloth clamshell box with leather title label to spine. Includes an essay by William S. Peterson reprinted to accompany the edition. A handsome copy of arguably one of the most beautiful books produced in England. The book is in fine condition, but sadly the solander box has a mark where some wax has sat on the blue paper. This does not effect the book at all.
