12mo - 18 x 11 cm.; xlviii - 346 pp. The text is in French. A fine red polished cloth over boards with gilt lettering on spine and a black and white vignette illustration on the front board surrounded by a gilded border. Yellow book mark ribbon set into the headband. Introduction to the work by Adolphe Boschot and a biographical timeline of Gautier by Madeleine Cottin. Illustrated with 15 black and white plates including the frontis photograph of the author. Library markings, of which none are external, are stamps on the front end papers, the half title page and the title page along with an unused pocket on the back free end paper. Aside from the plethora of stamps, the book appears to have never been used. The original clear vinyl dust jacket is present and shows mild scuffing along with a piece missing at the top of the spine. Still, a handsome little book and well produced.; Ex-Library
