Description
Jules Verne - Le Testament d'un Excentrique - 1905
Illustrated, Literature - Quantity: 1 - Book

Le Testament d'un Excentrique by Jules Verne published by éditions Hetzel in its polychrome binding with an elephant.
The book’s binding is in excellent condition, the front and back covers are in new condition, the colours and the gilding are quite bright, the spine, however, is slightly less bright than the covers and it should be noted that the headcap is slightly frayed, as you can see in one of the photos.
The interior of the book is also in excellent condition, the pages are perfectly white and there is no foxing to note, the signatures are nicely bound and form a beautiful ingot effect, note that there are some slightly copper-coloured marks on the gilding of the edges as you can see in some of the photos.
As a whole, this is a gorgeous copy that is quite close to having no miles on it.
IIf you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to let me know. I will reply as quickly as possible.
Happy bidding!
