Bob HAAK Rembrandt His Life His Work…1969 1st ed Signed # 60 of 1685

A superb copy both inside and out, a true work of bookmaking and binding, a near-perfect hardcover copy with unbruised tips, tight binding, and clean internals. Full brown Morocco leather over boards, with a huge gilt “R” stamped to cover over a blind-stamped design, and then seven raised bands to spine, title in gilt over a blue label in its own compartment between bands. The fore-edges of the pages are protected by a protected gray cardboard cover.

The book is housed in a Fine condition slipcase with an intact pull-ribbon and brown paper over brown cloth-covered boards. The slip-case is large, tall, and beautiful. Inside and out, it’s in gift-worthy condition. This is No. 60 of 1685 copies made for privileged members of the Abrams Limited Editions Society, with 109 tipped-in color plates, 503 black-and-white images, and a full bibliography. The book is bound entirely in leather. End papers are marbled, and the top edges are gilded. Between two raised bands at the bottom of the spine, “Abrams” is stamped in gilded.
