Cupid and Psyches – Apuleius
700 copies of this edition printed by the Fortune Press in 1927.
Very good condition. DJ has 2 chips of about 1 cm to either side of the top of the spine and fading to the spine and top edges. There are signs of wear to the corners and edges. The DJ has at some point been put into a protective plastic sleeve. The boards are covered in a cream marbled paper which is discoloured to the spine ends and lower corners whilst doing an excellent job of displaying various handling marks and mild staining. The board edges are grubby with shelf wear and dust. The gilt lettering to the spine is bright. The front inner board has a book plate of D W T C Vessey M.A. Ph.D. The pages of the book are unnumbered and rough cut at the edges with varying page widths. Some of the page edges show signs of sunning. The pages are clean and flat with the decorative text borders printed in red ink.
