The Ocean of Story, Being C.H. Tawney's Translation of Somadeva's Katha Sarit Sagara...with Introduction, Explanatory Notes and Terminal Essay by N.M. Penzer [SIGNED]
London: Privately Printed for Subscribers Only by Chas. J. Sawyer, 1924. First Edition. Hardcover. Near fine. Complete set of 10 volumes, one of 1500 sets printed. Unlike the general run, however, this set is signed by Norman Penzer on the limitation page of Volume I. Royal 8vo, uniformly bound in black cloth decorated in gilt on spine and boards, top edge gilt, textured endpapers. A very near fine set, with a few lightly bumped corners and mild dust soiling to the gilt on the top edges. All volumes internally clean and tight. An eleventh-century collection of Indian legends, fairy tales and folk tales called the Kath sarits gara. Tawney's translation, first published in 1880-84, was the first complete translation in English. Penzer's edition is greatly expanded with detailed notes and commentary.
