Beautiful grey leather bound book by the Easton Press featuring Three Plays by Henrik Ibsen (1828 - 1906). The plays are: An Enemy of the People, The Wild Duck, and Hedda Gabler. They were first published in Christiania (now Oslo), Norway, respectively 1882, 1884, and 1890.
The book features premium hand-cut full leather boards with a distinct cover design in ornate 22-karat gilt also on the pages. There are silk moire end-papers with a sewn in matching satin bookmark. The paper used is acid neutral to last generations without discoloring. The condition of the book is Fine in as new condition and very tight, never having been opened or read. But there is a light scratch in the leather on the cover that is about 5" long, however it does not take away from the beauty of the book. There is a bookplate from the estate of the previous owner that can be replaced. No other markings or any other signs of previous ownership. These books really have to be held to appreciate the beauty of them.
325 pages, measuring 10 1/4" X 7" and weighs three lbs. Published by the Easton Press in 1979.
