A  hardcover edition, where there is some foxing and toning but the text and black and white woodcuts are clear and legible. Printed on archival paper with gold gilded edges.

A beautiful addition to any bookshelf.


Translated by GH McWilliam with the woodcuts of Jose Narro.

Published 1981 by the Franklin Library, Pennsylvania, United States.
