      Raheb. Barbara - 5 Exquisite miniature books
      Gatronomy and Cookery
      Book 1. Christmas Countdown Cookbook. Limited edition of 300 copies, this is #: 215. Book 2. Herbs and Spices. Limited edition of 300 copies, this is #: 274. Book 3. Liber Culinaria. Limited edition of 300 copies, this is #: 223. Book 4. The Origins of Foods. Limited edition of 300 copies, this is #: 83. Book 5. The English Tea. Limited edition of 300 copies, this is #: 26.

Full bottle green calf with ornate gilt tooling to spine and front cover. Title page and full text with some illustrations of herbs and plants in the text. Book 3. 9x4.5mm. Full black calf with gilt tooling to spine and front cover. Frontis. Title page and text. (a manuscript on medieval cookery) Also has a metal clasp. Book 4. 5x3.5mm. Full red Leather with gilt on spine and gilt tooling on front cover. pp142. With some ilustrations in text. Book 5. 5x3.5mm. Full black calf with gilt tooling to spine and front cover. Title page and full text. All the books are signed by Barbara Raheb. All are beautifully bound. They are kept in a nice clamshell box bound in full dark calf with red and green labels and gilt lettering. An exceptional item.
      - Unfortunately, due to fading eyesight, Barbara Raheb has now stopped creating these exquisite little books. They are made to an exceptional standard. In each book, the sum of the parts is in perfect proportion to the whole. These five came from a museum of miniatures, and as such are like new. They are highly collectable and sought after. As only 300 of each were produced and printed, in time, great rarity will ensue.
      £ 3750 .00
