Paris: Maison Quantin, 1890. Hardcover. Good. Item #072250
Language: French. Clean except for a prior owner's label on the front endpaper, mild foxing at endpapers, and gentle toning throughout; a bound-in ribbon bookmark shows fading and two short tears near the bound end; the hard cover has been bumped at the free corners, causing small inward turns and some concentric wrinkling and edge chipping, but the marbled boards are otherwise attractive, the quarter cloth moderately faded and showing a few patches of finish attenuation along the spine but otherwise well-kept, with gilt lettering to a black pastedown title block still sharp and bright. 167pp. From the collection of a grand-master of fencing.
