This is a beautiful First Edition Thus of Thoreau's great classic 'Cape Cod". It was limited to 1500 copies of which this is number 1454. The book was planned and printed by Fred Anthoensen at the Anthoensen Press in Portland. Main. The book is illustrated with drawings from R.J. Holden and is signed by him on the colophon. The book is in near fine condition with some spotting to the top-edge for a couple of inches out from the spine. There is very slight sunning to the spine of the book. The slipcase shows wear but still looks great. There is some fading and there is a bit of paper scratched away from the top of the box near the spine. There is also a small tape remnant at the very bottom outside extremity of the front of the case. 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.
