This one is for the bibliophiles (no illustrations), I am trying to identify the publisher and date. A previous owner has penciled in c 1900 on the ffep. Other than that there is nothing to indicate date, publisher or printer. It is a lovely little book nicely printed on good quality paper, bound in quarter green leather on marbled boards. Limited edition of 75 copies,11 x 16 c.m. 254 pp, with 2 page catalogue of other titles. The books listed are all very small print runs, and the heading Bibliotheque pour les curieux, does not offer any hits.

The only clue appears to be the printer or publishers device on the Title Page ÉTERNITÉ, under which is a small image of a winged helmet.
