Boston: Millet, (c. 1897-98). Edition De Luxe. Hardcover. 10 volumes. Edition limited to 750 copies of which this is number 267. Each of the 10 volumes was to contain a full-page collotype, 6 full-page albumen photographs, a full-page color plate with brief accompanying text by Kakuzo Okakura, and about 20 smaller hand-colored albumen photos. This set has all of the photos and collotypes but is missing the final color plate in six of the volumes (I, II, III, IV, V and IX). The original silk covers, in a variety of colors, show definite fraying and wear on corners and elsewhere (especially on Vol. VIII). Internally the set is really nice (except for the 6 missing plates). Bookplate on front pastedown in every volume of E Parin [d'Aulaire] who with his wife Ingri wrote and illustrated a series of much-admired children's books. The d'Aulaires won the third Caldecott medal in 1940 for their picture book titled Abraham Lincoln. Good. Item #88236
