An LEC edition "planned to evoke Edith Wharton, realist and ironist . . . a period piece set in an exquisite milieu." Arthur Mizener supplied the introduction and Lily Harmon the 24 illustrations (12 full-page watercolors and 12 black and white sketches), in a volume designed by Philip Grushkin. The text was set in Linotype Fairfield, Bernhard Cursive, and Lucian and printed on Mohawk wove paper; the binding was done by Tapley-Rutter in dark blue buckram with a light blue damask cloth inset on the front cover.
This is numbered copy 733 of 2000 printed, signed at the colophon by the artist. The appropriate newsletter (in original envelope) and prospectus are laid in.
Bibliography of the Fine Books Published by the Limited Editions Club, 485. Binding as above, in light blue paper–covered slipcase with matching spine label; slipcase spine very slightly sunned, volume fresh and clean. Overall a beautiful copy. (Inventory #: 36284)
