Folio (325 × 250 mm), pp. , 40, . Plates and illustrations, the former hand-coloured. Original coloured pictorial wraps. Slight stain to lower cover, but an excellent copy. From the books of the late Martin Stone (1946-2016).
First edition, number 20 of 25 copies on japon of a total edition of 300. One of Mariani’s annuals extolling the virtues of his coca wine.
