Octavo, bound by Trow in 3/4 red morocco & marbled boards, top edge gilt, gilt-stamped spine, 159, [i] pp + 144 pp. + viii,  - 148, [i] pp + 156 pp. Plates, illustrations. This volume is from the personal library of Lafcadio Hearn. It bears his ownership signature on a front endpaper and his name stamp on the title page. In part, the book seems to have been a basis for HEarn's first book, Stray Leaves from Strange Literature, first published in 1884. He seems to also have had an interest in the Armenian, Basques, and Arabic culture. Books bearing Hearn's autograph are scarce, particularly volumes from his personal library. Fine, in a cloth jacket with calf label.
