London: The Nonesuch Press, 1928. 4to. Limited edition. #781 of 1475 copies. Rebound in full tan niger morocco, gilt, by Henry Sotheran, apparently to match the publisher's binding on the set of Shakespeare's Works (1929-33) which was another highlight of the Nonesuch Press. Top edge gilt. New endpapers. Double page illustrations from Botticelli's drawings in Berlin and Rome. Item #3406
Originally issued in an orange-stained, full vellum binding which is now often found faded and warped. This rebinding is sumptuous, sympathetic and attractive.
