Manon Lescaut by Abbé Prevost superbly illustrated by Paul Emile Becat, published in 1941 by Le Vasseur.
475 copies of this book were printed, this is a copy on Arches handmade large vellum paper, No. 27, it contains among other things rejected plates in several stages with comments and a set in black of all the engravings, also with comments, P.E. Becat signed a very lovely work here as an illustrator.
This book is in very good condition, the pages are perfectly white and very well preserved, this is undoubtedly due to the high quality of the paper used, the sets of images are also in very good condition, no foxing is present throughout the entire book.
The slipcase is also in very good condition, only some darkening here and there as can be seen on the spine but other than this, nothing to report.
If you have any further questions about this book, please let me know, I will answer you as soon as possible.
Good luck at auction!
