Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston, 1968, Hardcover, , 1st ed., 1st printing, Fine /Very Good
175 pp. First edition, first printing. A clean, near fine volume price-clipped at the top although the price ($75) is found at the bottom of the front flap. Previous owner signed and dated (1968) on the half title. The dust jacket was torn completely from top to bottom of the spine, then stored folded within the book. The tear has since been repaired with japan paper to be practically unnoticeable from the outside. The crease on the front is visible, and is now protected in an archival wrap, but doesn't really detract from the stunning effect of the presentation. The interior is about fine. The reproduction of the art was done at Triton Press in New York, typography by Rudolf Ruzicka. Union Camp Corporation printed the engraved plates in Englewood, New Jersey, Robert Clive is responsible for the layout. The paper is University Text, cover fabric Bolton Buckram, and the book was bound by A, Horowitz & Son in Clifton, New Jersey. Fine crafting still making a good impression.
