The Book of the Thousand Nights and One Night [a four-volume boxed set]

London, The Folio Society, 1973 (third impression)/ 1958.

Octavo, four volumes, with 52 full-page illustrations by Eric Fraser and Frank Martin.

Quarter gilt-decorated forrel (see below) and decorated papered boards; spines a little discoloured; boards a little marked and rubbed; a very good set in the slipcase a little bumped, rubbed and slightly worn (exposing the boards at the opening).

Rendered into English from the literal and complete French translation of Dr J.C. Mardrus by Powys Mathers. This set lacks the publisher's leaflet explaining the material used in the binding; a 'bookbinders' parchment known as forrel. It is a natural material made from animal skin and therefore varies in grain, colour and thickness'. [4 items].
