John Lane, The Bodley Head. London. 1904.
FIRST ENGLISH EDITION. 8vo (7.8 x 5.4 inches). Illustrated with 14 full page mono photographic plates showing various famous paintings of Mary Magdalen. Previous owners name and date (1904) on front blank endpaper. Several text pages affected by some foxing, some pages heavier than others, but still a very good copy internally. Original publishers green cloth binding with gilt lettering and decoration designs by Jessie M. King to both boards and spine. Top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Aside from some minor bumping to the corners and edges of the binding this is a better than very good copy with the gilt still nice and bright.
