The George Eliot Portfolio  1888  Illus    Limited The George Eliot Portfolio  1888  Illus    Limited



BOOK DESCRIPTION: Estes and Lauriat, Publishers, 1888., Boston, 1888. HC. Edition De Luxe, Limited Edition, 202/250 numbered copies. Not paginated. Full bound in white & red boards with gilt stamped titling on front board & white, moire pastedowns. This book originally contained sixty Japanese paper proofs from original etchings and photo etchings of Eliot, though 2 (#11 & #43) are missing.


BOOK CONDITION: The plates are clean and in very good condition, with only a few that have a hint of rubbing on top margin of plate impression; a beautiful collection. White boards and spine have a light scattering of scratches. Appears that someone has removed a label from the front moire pastedown, leaving scuffed area. Gilt edged text block is still very bright. Plates #11 & #43 missing. The book is in remarkable condition for its age. I have found only 2 copies listed on other booksellers' sites: both of books from the Parisian Limited Edition published at the same time ($400 - $750). No American editions appear to be available.


Free Shipping to US destinations. Shipping costs to destinations other than the US will depend on USPS fees to specific country.
