Descripción

This 85 page beautiful facsimile "Book of Hours" published by the Cloisters at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, being an increasingly well respected and energetically applauded offering it is proudly presented with great and well deserved hubris by Hirschfeld Galleries in BOTH the publishers original glassine wrapped binding and original slipcase. The binding is cream marbled vellum boards with gilt title and decoration on front and on spine. And it is rock solid, tight and clean, near as new. Original glassine wrapper is also like new. Slipcase is AAA save for a few tiny chips at corners. Illustrated with 32 full-color glossy facsimiles of the 15th Centry book make it a wonderful gift book, for yourself or a loved one. At the time of this listing, this particular copy of this revered title appears to be the best, or one of the best listed on the internet. Alas, when all is said and done and the proverbial geese have come home to nest or roost, or whatever, this book does have the four absolute uppermost qualities we at Hirschfeld Galleries since 1931 have always sought, and demanded, in books: 1) excellence in content, 2) literary quality, 3) appealing design, and 4) significance of contribution. Another great altruistic offering opportunity for us and an even greater opportunity for self-actualized reception on your part. But enough of the lugubrious however allegorically wise jaw-jacking, enough said of the telluric parameters of select Hirschfeld Galleries' offerings such as this one which take on a life of their own and speak so very loudly for themselves. Read to learn and enjoy; go forth to share and enjoin. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. N° de ref. de la librería 006468
