Carteret IV, 177. - Eines von 100 nummerierten und nominativen Exemplaren (GA 115), dieses gedruckt für Paul-Sébastien Gallimard (1850-1929), Vater des Verlegers Gaston Gallimard, Architekt, Bibliophiler und Gründungsmitglied der Société des Amis des Livres.

Mai 1880, diese nach dem eingebundenen Umschlag montiert. - Die Suite der 12 Radierungen auf Japan gedruckt. Die 54 Vignetten außerhalb des Textes in zwei Zuständen auf China gedruckt, die 27 Initialen einmal im Text vorhanden sowie ebenfalls in zwei Zuständen auf China (Initiale von S. 191 nur in einem Zustand vorhanden). - "These volumes of which 115 copies only were issued each copy numbered and bearing the name of the member for whom it was destined have risen in price to three and even six times their original value and are indeed only procurable at the sales of their fortunate possessors. This limited issue of books so charmingly got up and consequently so eagerly desired by collectors of taste has met with censure at the hands of those unable to penetrate into this petite chapelle but in this respect every bookworm is I believe alike and equally incorrigible as long as book collecting exists the collector will never cease to prize his acquisition in proportion to its rarity." (The Bibliographer, vol.I, 1882, S. 171) - Sehr schönes und reich illustriertes Exemplar im Meistereinband.

Conditions of Sale

Terms of Sale

The Auction is voluntary and takes place on the basis of the Vendor's instructions. It is undertaken by us in our own name for the account of third parties. At the back of the Catalogue you will find the list of Consignors.

The terms of payment are cash payment in EURO. Invoice is due upon receipt within fortnight. Public institutions and libraries are granted four weeks credit.

Bidding commences at approximately two thirds of the estimate, when a higher reserve price has not been set by the Vendor. Bidding will not start below 2/3rds of the estimate. Bids are raised by 10% in each instance. Lots are knocked down to the highest Bidder if no higher bid is received after three times of asking. In the case of two equal bids, the Buyer is determined by drawing lots. If a difference of opinion regarding a hammer price cannot be resolved at once, the lot in question will be resubmitted for auction immediately. The Auctioneer shall be entitled to appoint suitable representatives in accordance with § 47 GewO to conduct the auction. Claims from the auction and in connection with the auction exist only towards the auctioneer.
