Beautiful copy of the first edition in colour of the ‘Lotus Bleu’, B1 back cover.
This is the very rare version of the first edition with the a front cover in a deep red colour and not orange.
The front and back covers are beautiful, protected by a kraft-style original cover.
The spine is also very well preserved, with a tiny correction and colour retouch at the top of the headcaps made by professional exactly as it was made.
It holds well together inside, in excellent state of preservation, which is unusual considering the fragility of the paper of this edition.
Very high quality album.
It is hard to find in such a beautiful state of preservation.
