“Babel” was published as a bound book in 1901, in a grey linen binding with brown decoration and lettering.

A (limited) number of copies were sewn into a vulnerable paper cover with a combination of red and grey. There are also copies with a more orange-brown colour, probably caused by discolouration (Van Vliet: 214).

This specimen with orange-brown front and back boards is in good condition; the pages are reasonably clean without a lot of rust and/ or notes.

See the photos.

All in all a good copy of this rare and vulnerable sewn edition.
