This edition is adorned with extravagantly colorful decorations, designed to emulate the classical gilt work of a cartonnage binding, with central panels at the center as well.
One brilliantly colored cartonnage volume in 12mo, 312 pages
On note of condition this volume is in very good shape, with minor rubbing and wear to the corners and spine. The binding is in excellent shape otherwise, with the printed binding in sharp relief. There is some foxing throughout.
