MARDRUS, Dr. J. C. (1868-1949), [POWYS MATHERS, E., translator].

The Queen of Sheba. Translated into French from his own Arabic Text.

London: The Casanova Society, no date [1924].

FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH. Octavo (21 x 14cm), pp.[2]; 102; [2]. Publisher’s vivid marbled paper covered boards, titles in white to spine and upper, edges untrimmed, dust-jacket lettered in black. Woodcut frontispiece with tissue guard.

Internally fine, a little dustiness to edges. Dust-jacket superfluously reinforced with tape to the reverse at the folds leaving some tape burn (not showing to front), a few small closed tears. A fantastic fresh copy. Near fine. 

A fine private press production of Powys Mathers’ English translation from the French.
