(3) half-title,t.p.,map,preface ix, quarter-title, (4) 653pp. 2pp. colophon. A beautiful book production with front and back covers fully blind-stamped depicting Confucius and his advisors (or listeners) along with Chinees character explanations. The spine is highlighted with sliver and gilt; picturing Confucius in gold robes with silver adornment under a wispy full moon whose light trickles in gold and silver down to the shoulders of Confucius. Gilt Chinese characters spell the title. Printed on linen paper with simple Chinese decorative depictions and beautiful lettering. An artistic endeavor that results in a most pleasing book. The Chinese language page is usually decorated and the French language page is directly opposite as you read through the book. An excellent example of the art of bookbinding and fine printing.
