Civilization of the Renaissance in Italy - Burckhardt (Phaidon Pocket Series) (image)

The Civilization of the Renaissance in Italy
by Jacob Burckhardt
London, Phaidon Press Ltd, London, 1955 (Phaidon Pocket Series).
Hardback bound in red cloth. Dust wrapper. "Complete & unabridged. 100 illustrations, with a commentary." 461 pages.

Series Note: This hardback book series was published under two imprints: London, Phaidon Press Ltd. of London and Phaidon Publishing Inc. of New York.

According to the verso page of a copy of The Civilization of the Renaissance in Italy that I have viewed, the book and its dust wrapper were printed in England. The title page of that book showed the imprint: New York, Phaidon Publishers Inc., by which we can infer that the book was to be shipped to the United States for sale there.

Format: Hardback bound in red cloth printed with silver typography and silver and black decorations. Illustrated dust wrappers with a decorative frame enclosing the illustration on the front panel.
