London: Philip Lee Warner, The Medici Society, 1910-1911. Illustrated by W.Russell Flint. First edition. 4 volumes. 4to. The Text of William Caxton in modernized spelling. 46 colored plates by William Russell Flint. Tissue guards printed in red.
Full limp vellum; gilt titles; top edges gilt. Green silk ties; white ribbon markers. Printed on Riccardi handmade paper. One of 500 numbered copies, this being number 280. In the scarce green dust wrappers printed in black.
The rear inner hinge of Volume 4 has pulled a bit, else the books are in fine, bright condition. The dust wrappers have some minor sunning, and the dust wrapper to volume 3 lacks a small piece at the base of the spine, but overall the dust wrappers are in very good condition and a scarce survival
Each volume is housed in the original publisher's slipcase. The slipcases are generally worn and sunned, but still serviceable and presentable.
This is likely the nicest set of the Flint Malory in limp vellum available.
