The Life of Benvenuto Cellini, Written by Himself, 2 volumes, 1906 in fine bindings

New York: Brentano's, 1906. Hardcover. Tall 8vo, 2 volumes, bound in full dark green morocco gilt with handsome gilt decorations and central arabesque to covers, raised bands, gilt titled and decorated on spines, bindings unsigned, possibly the publisher's in-house fine binder. Very good plus set with just a touch of wear to top of the spine of the first volume (see pic), some offsetting to borders of flyleaves from the leather turn-ins. A lovely set of one of the all time great autobiographies: not only was Cellini a great artist, but also fancied himself an equally fine fighter and lover, and a general troublemaker. His braggadocio is told with such joy and elegance that the book loses nothing from a full living breathing portrait of a bawdy Renaissance figure. Very Good. Item #H5968
