Here is a limited edition of The Philosophical Works of Rene Descartes, “published exclusively for subscribers to The Franklin Library collection—The 100 Greatest Books of All Time,” dated 1981.

It is translated by Elizabeth S. Haldane and G. R. T. Ross and decorated with 17th-century engravings.

The cover and spine are leather with gilt decoration.  There are two embossed bands on the spine.  The title and other information are gilt, as are the edges of the pages.

The end papers are gray silk moiré and show a fair amount of fading; the ribbon book mark is also gray.

Other than this fading and some rubbing of the gilt page edges, the book is in excellent condition with tight, clean, unmarked pages.

I have described this book as accurately and honestly as I can.  Please email with any questions.  Thank you for stopping by.
