Beautiful two volume set with some minor wear to slipcase. First edition for these illustrations. Signed by Edward Ardizzone, the illustrator. Volumes have attractive pictorial cloth boards. Very Nice. The 1954 First Thus publication of this Thackeray classic. Only Fifteen hundred copies were printed of which this is copy number 1274. Printed at the University Press in Cambridge, England. Fine Illustrations. The illustrator has signed the book on the limitation page. The book is bound in a Gorgeous pictorial cloth. The volumes are in Very Good+ condition and would be fine but there appears to be some slight rippling of the pages in the first volume, primarily to the plate pages. It's matching slipcase shows shelf-wear with some chipping and small loss of paper, particularly to the opening perimeter of the box. The box is very good- at best. The Limited Editions Club was founded in 1929. It was the creation of George Macy. Its purpose was to create very high quality versions of the classics that were also illustrated by the finest contemporary artists. All Limited Edition Club books are hand signed by the illustrators with a short description of the making of the book on the colophon in the rear of the volume. Only a few were published without a signature because the illustrator had passed away before publication. All LEC books come with a fine decorative slipcase and the great majority of them contain original fine art within.They are finely constructed books printed by the best printers and on fine paper.They are highly collectible.
