Descripción

This 402 page examination of a legendary figure, a First Edition Stated, 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 binding and original dustwrapper. The binding is full pristine purple cloth, rock solid, tight and clean, AAA save for a half inch band of sunning to the top portions of the binding. The pictorial jacket retains all its charm but does have extensive large chips missing. But not to worry or be sad, for said imperfection is made less objectionable, since, on the very positive side of things, the jacket is now and forevermore protected from any future ambient abuse and resulting degradation by professionally fitted and applied yet instantly removable Brodart mylar. Frontispiece: glossy plate: a bust of the Marquis de LaFayette. Translated from the German by E. W. Dickes. Marquis de Lafayette (1757-1834) was a gallant, young Frenchman who generously placed his life and his fortune at the disposal of the fighting American colonists. He also served in the American Revolution and became a close friend of George Washington. Lafayette was also famous for aiding in two French Revolutions. He rescued Queen Marie Antoinette from a mob that stormed the Palace of Versailles in 1789, among other legendary feats. Andy Latzko looks alternately dispassionately and passionately at all sides of this controversially chosen subject matter, and we at Hirschfield Galleries hope that only those who similarly read and contemplate with an objective mind would yearn to become the next caretaker of this seminalogic work. Alas, when all is said and done and the proverbial geese have come home to nest or roost, or whatever, and you're ready to decide to invest some of your hard-earned cash in this lofty offering, please consider that this book does indeed 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. Research, analysis, dissertation, lucubrations or just enjoyment, this is the one. ACTUAL BOOK FOR SALE PICTURED.
