THIS BOOK WAS PASSED DOWN FROM MY GRANDFATHER TO MY MOTHER. IT HAS BEEN WITH US SINCE I CAN'T EVEN REMEMBER. IT HAS BEEN KEPT ON A SHELF COVERED WITH A SOFT CLOTH TO PROTECT IT.


THE COVER IS OLIVE TO TAN IN COLOR WITH GOLD LEAFING THROUGH THE FRONT, SIDES AND BACK OF THE BOOK. IT HAS FLOWERS ON IT THAT ARE PAINTED RED WITH GOLD LEAF GOING OVER THEM. THE TOPS OF THE PAGES ARE ALSO WITH GOLD OF THEM. THE INSIDE COVER ALSO HAS ONE GOLD LEAF IN THE MIDDLE WHICH HAS A FLOWER PAINTED BLACK AS DOES THE BACK COVER.


THIS BOOK WAS ILLUSTRATED BY J WAGREZ AND LOUIS TITZ FROM THE PARIS SOCIETE DES BEAUX ARTS.


i CAN NOT BE SURE OF AN EXACT DATE. i AM SURE IT IS BEFORE 1895 WHERE THERE WERE OTHER COPIES MADE IN THE STATE THAT WERE NOT ARTIST EDITIONS.  I THOUGHT I SAW ON ONE OF THE PICTURES A DATE OF 1867 BUT I CAN'T SWEAR TO IT. I HAVE CONTACTED OTHER BOOK PEOPLE BUT THEY WERE VERY RELUCTANT TO GIVE ME ANY INFORMATION ON THIS BOOK.


IT TRUELY IS A BEAUTY. IT HAS TISSUE PAPER BETWEEN MOST OF THE ILLUSTRATIONS. THERE ARE ALOT OF COLORED ILLUSTRATIONS ALSO.


THE ONLY THING THAT NEED DOING IS A LITTLE GLUE ON THE INSIDE PAGE, HOWEVER I DIDN'T WANT TO TOUCH IT.


TO ME WHO IS NOT A COLLECTOR OF RARE BOOKS THIS IS A REAL COLLECTORS ITEM. I'D LOVE TO HEAR YOUR FEED BACK ON THIS.


IF YOU NEED ANY MORE PICTURES OR INFORMATION JUST ASK.
