...and I wouldn't do it to a 1st ed. Gawain (Garm)


There is a little misunderstanding here, I think. My Gawain, as all the early prints I bet, has deckle edges (=untrimmed/uncut pages), but is not unopened. I can turn every page, but the edges of the pages are rough, not smooth.

But I don't think I will 'open' my copy of Essais. I'm not that handy and the risk of creasing a page is too great. And it seems a nice oddity to my collection. It also means the book has never been read or used before.

Anyway, thank you for your responses!
