New York: George Braziller, 1977. First Thus. The love story of Daphnis and Chloe translated by George Moore. With gorgeous full page colour illustrations by Marc Chagall. The original limited edition of 250 copies (1961) is now priceless, but this work faithfully reproduces the beauty of the first. Hardback. In original dust jacket. Jacket has some rubbing and edge wear, but inside is very good. 330 x 245 mm (13 x 9¾ inches).

The prologue reads: "Whilst hunting in the island of Lesbos I saw in a grove consecrated to the nymphs the most beautiful thing I had ever seen in my life, a painted carving figuring a human love story in all its joys and tribulations".
