Candide by Voltaire 1947 Peter Pauper Press H/C w/ Slipcase Illus.Fritz Kredel

Offering a vintage hard cover book published by the Peter Pauper Press, circa 1947.

This is Voltaire's, Candide, or the Optimist, with illustrations by Fritz Kredel.

The book is hardcover measuring 10" X 6 1/2" and comes in a hard cover slipcase.

The book is in excellent condition. No tears, scribbles, stains, etc. Good tight binding.

The paper is a specialty paper that used to be produced by Peter Pauper, and it is thick and creamy. There seems to be a slight touch of yellowing, but as it is uniform, with no foxing, it might just be the paper itself.

The slip case is unbroken, hand covered in yellow/cream paper with some bumping and peeling along the rims of the open edges.

All in all, an excellent, vintage edition, with wonderful illustrations.
