Price: $150.00

Quantity: 1 available


Near Fine edition of Nathaniel Hawthorne's classic. The book is near fine with a few light spots to the red top coating of the book. This is hard to see and does not really detract. There is some wear to slipcase and a very small tear of the paper at the top right corner of the opening. There is light sunning to the spine. There were only 1500 copies of this edition printed in 1966 of which this is number 1149. It was printed at the Stinehour Press. The illustrations were drawn by Valenti Angelo and the volume is signed by him on the colophon. A great classic in a very lovely format. The Limited Editions Club was founded in 1929. It was the creation of George Macy. Its purpose was to create very high quality versions of the classics that were also illustrated by the finest contemporary artists. All Limited Edition Club books are hand signed by the illustrators with a short description of the making of the book on the colophon in the rear of the volume. Only a few were published without a signature because the illustrator had passed away before publication. All LEC books come with a fine decorative slipcase and the great majority of them contain original fine art within.They are finely constructed books printed by the best printers and on fine paper.They are highly collectible.
