Product description

This exquisite deluxe limited edition of Henry James's 1903 classic novel, was printed "exclusively for subscribers to The Greatest Books of the Twentieth Century". "This dark comedy, seen as one of the masterpieces of James's final period, follows the trip of protagonist Lewis Lambert Strether to Europe in pursuit of Chad Newsome, his widowed fiancée's supposedly wayward son; he is to bring the young man back to the family business, but he encounters unexpected complications."
The hardback is bound in full red leather, with gilt lettering and design to the covers and spine, which also has four raised bands. Inside, the end papers are in red silk and there is a permanent red satin book marker. The page edges are gilded on specially milled acid-neutral paper. The edition also contains beautiful illustrations of the paintings of Jean Beraud.
The copy is in very good condition, with just a few scratches to the gilt page edges, and some minor rubbing and scratching from shelf wear. Inside, the pages are clean and the binding is tight. A beautiful copy for collectors or those looking for a wonderful gift!
