The 1976 publication of this Stevenson classic. Two thousand copies were printed of which this is copy number 631. Printed at the Garamond Press in Baltimore, Maryland. This beautiful edition was designed by Eugene M. Ettenberg and it contains fine Illustrations by Clarke Hutton who has signed the book on the limitation page. The volume is in very fine condition and it's matching slipcase is near fine with only a few very small spots to the bottom of the spine. They really do not detract and the book makes a lovely presentation. Within the case the book is protected by a clear dustjacket the way all of the LEC's used to be. 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.
