Wow, here is a great antique miniature book about Persia for your buying consideration. Would make a great gift for a special occasion or keep for yourself!
This book will only be offered for a short time thru this distribution channel. If one of you does not acquire it, the book will be heading off to one of the high end auction houses that we utilize for our better items to consign it for sale. So, if you are seriously interested in acquiring this book before then, please contact us and we can determine a reasonable price for this special book. We all know what happens price wise when special/rare sought after items like this go to a high end auction house, let alone the 25% to 30% buyers premium that has to be paid on top of that. We look forward to hearing from you.
We have not found another one of these almost 400 year old books on sale online. So, seems to be a very rare book.
This miniature book is pretty amazing. Two books in one. The first book done in 1633 is about Persia. The second book printed in 1631 is about India.
This miniature book is 4.5" tall, by 2.25" across, by 1.75" wide. The first book within the book is 374 pages in length and the second book within the book is 299 pages in length. No mildewy smell to the book. The books are abundantly illustrated.
The book is still securely bond together. Probably rebound some point in time in the past. There is some minor foxing/brown spotting, but book is still in very good condition. The front and rear covers are still firmly attached to the book, certainly some loss of finish and the corners show wear. The covering on the spine is still in place as well. Some owners names and other notes on pages within the book in ink. There used to be clasps for the books, eye screws and plates still in place, but long hooks from front to back are not there. Let us know if you have any questions or need additional pictures. Don’t be shy to make an offer, we are always open to reasonable suggestions.
Make sure that this item meets your needs and requirements before deciding to acquire it. The item can be returned, there is a 10% restocking fee to do so.
