Binding, Fine- Harcourt Bindery- 1 of 10 Copies, Printed on Real Vellum] The Biblionmaniac Edition. The Works of Charles Paul De Kock
The Frederick J. Quinby Company, Paris, Boston, London 1902 - 8vo. One of Only 10 Copies, Printed on Real Vellum, lavishly bound by the Harcourt Bindery in full rich green crushed morocco with bold inlaid iris motif consisting of five different blossoms on each cover, and tulip design on spine in red-brown, ochre, beige and blue. Even more stunning full inlaid doublures with matching and wonderful near full size iris in many colors, against green central panels, moroon and then blue outer panels, green morroco lined free endsheets. Book is hand-colored throughout with superb initials and headpieces. IN THE ORIGINAL PUBLISHERS FOLDING MOROCCO CASE, silk-lined, raised bands, onlaid morocco spine with heavy gilt, original metal clasps. The famous "Bibliomaniac Edition," one volume from an edition of 100 volumes, standing on its own merits as individual masterpiece, and seldom found nowadays in an affordable commodity. ONE OF TEN COPIES from a set that is unavailable as a complete entity. Quinby's famous foray into extravagance, shooting for the most expensive and artistically comprehensive set ever produced, and some would argue, he attained his goals. Certainly exceedingly scarce in the original case, and an exceedingly fine copy. [Attributes: First Edition]
