Anthony Van Dyck: A Further Study with Twenty-Five Illustrations in Colour Executed Under the Supervision of the Medici Society
London, Hodder and Stoughton, ND (1911). Hardcover. Unpaginated. Larger 4to. Bound in full decorated vellum. The edges are yapped. Slight ablation to gilt lettering and design on spine: the gilt on the ornately decorated front board is sharp and bright. The two ribbon ties are mostly gone, with 'stubs' remaining. Our copy exhibits the typical tightening of the joints. A few small smudges to front free endpaper. Text block typically rippled; otherwise exceptionally clean and bright. Slight off-setting from plates. In all, a very nice copy in very good condition. A title in The Arundel Library of Great Masters. A very scarce presentation: only 100 copies of this edition were produced, and none are currently offered for sale, or have recently come to auction. This Edition de Luxe is limited to One Hundred Copies signed and numbered, of which this is No. 50 (signed by publisher).
