The Memoirs of Casanova.
London: Privately Printed for Subscribers only. The Casanova Society, 1922. 12 volume set, 10 inches tall. An elegant half morocco binding by Zaehnsdorf with gilt raised bands, delicate centre tools and top edges. This is the first complete edition in English, containing the two chapters discovered and translated by Arthur Symons. The rest is the Arthur Machen translation from 1896. This set is number 258 of a lilted edition of 1000 copies. The Celebrated memoirs cover the period 1725-1803. Published privately for subscribers only due to the erotic nature of many of the entries. It is unusual to find this edition bound by a top 'West End' firm of binders shortly after the date of its printing. A splendid set of this great work.
