The Notebooks of Leonardo Da Vinci, 2 Volume Set, Da Vinci, Leonardo & Edward MacCurdy
9 Da Vinci, Leonardo & Edward MacCurdy The Notebooks of Leonardo Da Vinci, 2 Volume Set
New York Reynal & Hitchcock 1938 Definitive Edition hardcover 

Two-volume boxed set. Undated, cerca 1938. Gift inscription on each book dated 1939. A number of pages were not cut by the printer (along the outer edges) in the first 100 or so pages of Volume I and in the first half of Volume II; a very few pages may have been trimmed a little on the rough side on those edges. Volume I also has a small magazine blurb pasted in on the front endpaper. Otherwise, books are very sharp. In dust jackets with moderate sunning & spotting on the spines also a few penned characters on the spines, but very sharp elsewhere. The original cloth slipcase is present and has a rubbed spot on the panel with the label (also that label is rubbed), and general soiling on all sides. A decent set overall, we'll go with a grade of 'good'. Arranged and rendered into English with introductions by Edward MacCurdy. With around 70 plates.

Please note that priority mail and international mail will run extra on this heavy item.
