as desirable as the original, this is the superb limited edition of the finely produced facsimile reprint.
Limited to only fifty numbered copies, this work of art has been specially bound in full morocco decorated in gilt, with gilt edges and silk cloth end-papers, and each volume is contained in a slip-case with leather lettering strips.
volume one has been personally signed by Alan Villiers, who wrote the introduction for this reprint.
please note that the books were issued with inner and outer slip-cases, but on the outer cases are present on this set (the double slip-cases were a mixed blessing anyway, as the books were contained so tightly in them that they tended to develop a certain mustiness over time) 3 volumes. large format hardbacks (30x25cm).
