Description: 2 volumes in slipcase. Thick 4tos, bound in publisher's brown leather with gilt spines to mimic the original binding of the Pepys Manuscript (spine a bit dulled; outer joints worn; internally fine). New York: Braziller, 1986. Limited edition -- number 172 of 1200 copies.

Comments: Full color facsimile of the Phillipps Manuscript (Books 1 - 9) and the Pepys Manuscript (Books 10-15). This was once a single manuscript - The Caxton manuscript of 1480, but were long-separated. Pepys left this to Magdalene College, and The Phillipps copy was re-discovered in 1964. The pair are finally re-joined here in this handsome presentation.

Dear Argosy. THANK YOU very very much. I ordered the book "A Case of Removal of the Lower Jaw, for Osteo-Sarcoma of Immense Size" by George C. Blackman. I was pleased beyond words just to think that I was getting an original copy of a book that my great great grandfather wrote. When it arrived it was an even bigger treasure for me, as his own handwriting was in the upp right corner of the cover, giving the book to a fellow colleague. Thanks again so very much for helping me bring my ancestry searching a little closer and more personal. - S.B. Pratt
