Condition: VERY GOOD book, the covers have a few small spots and slight pushing to a couple corners but are solid, bright and clear; internally, the pages have light toning to the margins (as on every copy I have seen), lovely overall tight, bright, clean, clear and unmarked. The LITHOGRAPHS are GORGEOUS. In a GOOD original lithograph dustjacket that was professionally / archivally restored; the jacket is missing a large piece from the top front area of the rear panel, a piece at the bottom of the spine, and a few other small pieces, all of which have now been integrally reinforced; there are some scrapes to the folds, and some repaired and reinforced tears; overall the jacket is solid and bright.
A lovely copy of the book with all its incredibly beautiful lithographs by Marc Chagall, in its original (and archivally restored) dustjacket.
