Copy #124. 313 pp. Penzer p 156, 157.One of the more erotic books produced in the 1890s. Burton died before this was published so the prose portion was completed by L. SMithers. After the success of the Arabian Nights, Burton decided to take on translation of another erotic work. VG+ in orig. vellum over paper boards. Little wear at corners, spine nice. Crisp & clean throughout. Housed in a folding cloth covered case and then in a slipcase with gilt leather spine over cloth. Raised bands on spine. Box is a little better than vg, showing wear at tips, on edge of raised bands and corners. However, it has protected the book. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
