Les Liaisons Dangereuses, Volume II, De Laclos, Choderlos & Alastair
21 De Laclos, Choderlos & Alastair Les Liaisons Dangereuses, Volume II
Paris Black Sun Press 1929 Limited Edition paperback 

Volume II only, #571 of 1000 copies. Covers and spine have some browned spots, else externally quite solid. Unfortunately, most of the pages were not seperated at the top edges by the printer and are in groupings of 2 sheets (4 pages); this will make reading difficult. Otherwise, contents are in very good condition, including the seven plates by Alastair, which still have their original tissue guards. (The outer acetate jacket was in poor condition so we removed it.)

Please note that priority mail and expedited international mail may run extra on this item which cannot fit in the flat-rate envelope.
