The Decline & Fall Of The Roman Empire Gibbon Limited Editions Club No 541 RARE
The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. Made for members of The Limited Editions Club. Illustrations by Gian Battista Piranesi. Each title was unique, using special papers, special cover material including many in leather, and almost all came in a slipcase. Many of the titles were regarded as classics and produced by private small presses throughout the world; each book was beautifully illustrated with original artworks by leading book illustrators. Generally, LEC published no more than 1500 copies of any particular title, copies are numbered, and the illustrators hand signed each copy of the book they illustrated for the LEC. Today, LEC books are adored by rare book collectors and by those who collect them for their beauty alone. If you have any issues, please contact me before leaving feedback or opening a case.
