Octavo [24.5 cm] Black cloth over boards lettered and decoratively stamped in silver and gold. Publisher's red top stain. Fore and bottom edges rough trimmed. Frontispiece illustrations. Index. Very good. The cloth on the boards is occasionally lightly rubbed and scratched, the spine ends are gently bumped, and there are numerous small stains on the tops of the text blocks. The fore and bottom edges of the text blocks are lightly foxed. The gilt on a couple of the spines has rubbed off a bit. The pages are age-toned and sporadically uncut.
A partial set of Richard Burton's celebrated translation.
