The Philobiblon … ed. from the best manuscripts and tr. into English with an introduction and notes by Andrew Fleming West.

Publisher

New York: The Grolier Club

Date

1889.

Description

The Grolier Club’s eighth publication was this three-volume edition of the Philobiblon. The book’s original binding was apparently not luxurious enough for certain early Grolier members, for the Club owns a number of copies more or less richly bound by the original subscribers. The sumptuous covers in this set were crafted by Léon Maillard and the Club Bindery in full crushed morocco, each volume in a different color and design.
