Leipzig: Bernhard Tauchnitz, 1882. Fine Binding. 12mo (11 x 15.7 cm). Elaborately painted Vellum over beveled boards. Stylized dragon with armorial shield painted in green, gold and red.

Classical romances such as this tale set in seventeenth century Europe and England were often bound in this highly embellished style and appealed to the genteel traveler, touring Europe during the late nineteen and early twentieth centuries. Due to the transitory nature of these gift books or traveler's editions- few have survived in this fine condition. Copyright Edition. Fine.
