Shakespeare and Company. Paris. 1930.
ELEVENTH EDITION. Large 8vo. (8.3 x 6.7 inches). Finely bound in recent attractive full dark blue calf binding. The spine has five raised bands, the compartments ruled, lettered and decorated in gilt. Double gilt ruled borders on boards. Gilt inner dentelles. Decorative blue and white endpapers. Original blue paper wraps bound in. Top edge gilt. Light blue silk bookmarker. There is a 1.2 inch closed tear, without loss, to the front original wrapper and some marking to both. The pages are a little browned to the edges but overall this is a very good copy in a fine binding. The binding is unsigned but certainly the work of a master bookbinder. ---- The eleventh printing was the last issued by Shakespeare and Co, in May 1930.
