This listing is for an Easton Press Deluxe Limited Signed Edition of Beowulf, translated by Frederick Rebsamen, with illustrations by the Artist Yoann Lossel. The autograph is from the illustrator. This edition was released in 2017. It has a very nice low number of 96 out of 1,200 copies. Keep in mind this a rather large volume as Easton editions go.It is 12" X 9.5". This book looks to be in like new condition with a very stiff spine. I acquired a great number of Easton Press books from a very serious collector that had over two hundred different titles. None ever looked to have been read. So this is a great opportunity to pick one up at fraction of the cost a new one cost from the publisher. They are very high quality and they put a lot of work into crafting each edition. I made sure to take as many pics as possible.
So please take a close look at the pictures for exact condition as I tried to take them from every angle possible. After all, some people's "perfect" is another person's mauled by a bear. But this book really is in mint condition and looks to never have been cracked open much less read. More About Easton Press Books.
