The History of Rasselas Prince of Abyssinia


No slipcase. The story of the journey of Rasselas and his companions in search of "the choice of life." Its charm lies not in its plot, but rather in its wise and humane look at man's constant search for happiness. One discard stamp on title page, no other markings. A good clean copy with very slight edgewear and soil. 130 pages, 5.5 x 8.5.
