2 volumes, folio, full vellum with hand-painted illustrations on boards of each volume, gilded bosses at corners of front boards of a stag in relief, crimson moire silk endpapers; 107; 83 pp. Illustrated with 10 plates by Jean Gradassi, page margins illuminated in gold and colors by Arnaud Ansaldi, 2 suites of proofs in orange and green outline, 1 signed original painting by Arnaud Ansaldi tipped at front of first volume. Each volume housed in red morocco crimson silk clamshell case with vellum spine label.
Edition of 1150 copies, this #758 of 750 examples numbered 381-1130 (there were 20 hors-commerce copies as well). This copy doesn't quite align with any of the descriptions of the various iterations of the edition on the limitation pages. Nevertheless, it is a stunningly lavish presentation of this classic 14th-century celebration of the hunt.
