The 1957 First Thus publication of this William Prescott historical exploration classic. Only Fifteen hundred copies were printed of which this is copy number 21. Printed at the Imprenta Nuevo Mundo in Mexico City by Harry Block. This beautiful edition was designed by Harry Block and it contains fine Illustrations by Everett Gee Jackson. Both the illustrator and the printer have signed the book on the limitation page. The book is bound in a Gorgeous pictorial cloth and it is absolutely stunning. The volume is in fine condition and it's matching slipcase is very good- at best with notable wear such as scratching, chipping, and a small piece of paper at the bottom of the spine of the box that is in the process of detaching itself. However, the book is beautiful! 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.
