IDYLLS OF THE KING - GUSTAVE DORE - Easton Press TENNYSON OVERSIZED SEALED w BOX
1868. ***Copy of photos, personal formats, graphics, or text is prohibited. Ebay may drop listings with infractions. I review content regularly. Deluxe Limited Editions Idylls of the King Author: Alfred Lord Tennyson Illustrations by Gustave Dore Description: One of the most stunning Deluxe Limited Editions Easton Press has ever made and a facsimile of the 1868 Edward Moxon London edition. Only 600 copies of this Easton Press were made so they are destine to become extremely scarce. Gustave Dore is considered one of the greatest illustrators of all time, and books featuring his illustrations are highly prized. Indeed, this important title is one of four particularly important works of Dore that established him as not only the greatest illustrator of his country, but the greatest and most prolific of all time. Similar publications from Easton Press like History of the Crusades often sell over $2,000 if in excellent condition. If you are building a bottom row of more substantial Easton Press books to give your library weight and substance, this is a must. Condition: SEALED in original plastic, with original shipping box. ***Stock photos of illustrations are from my own personal copy which is open. This Fine Leather Book Features: Top grade, gold embossed/ornamented leather Gilded page ends to protect against dust and moisture Decorative end papers Acid neutral archival paper to last generations.
