New York: Wiley & Putnam, 1845. "Cellini was one of the most extraordinary men in an extraordinary age; his life, written by himself, is more amusing than any novel I know." (Quotation from Horace Walpole on the Title Page.) This is a nice mid-Victorian edition, with two volumes bound together in a fine binding. The translation is by Thomas Roscoe. Marbled paper-covered boards, with dark gray leather spine and tips. There are four raised bands and three rulings on the spine, in gilt with the title. Clean text, still quite bright; 256 pages. Minor spotting, mostly confined to the endpapers, and some rubbing to the margins. It remains a very attractive small volume of this classic of Western civilization. Size: 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall. First Thus.. Half-Leather. Very Good Plus/No Jacket. First Edition.
