12 Janos Arany Kapcsos Könyv ( Költemények ) (Hungarian Edition)
Budapest Akademiai Kiado 1977 First Edition / Limited Edition Full-Leather Almost Mint Slip Case, Good 14.5 x 21.5cm Approx 
2 + 86 pages of facsimile + 30 printed pages + 1. All Hungarian Text. Slip case in very good condition, minor rubbing/wear, clear title to spine end. Full Leather binding with brass locking clip in Very Good condition. Contents look mint, saw no inscriptions ( there does appear on 1st view to be inscriptions, but under eyeglass all the ones I checked are printed/ facsimile of the original handwritten book ). Please note I do not read Hungarian. So translated from google and From rear page “Ez a ko¨nyv a Magyar Tudoma´nyos Akade´mia ko¨nyvta´ra´nak ke´ziratta´ra´ban o?rzo¨tt Kapcsos ko¨nyv hu? ma´sa” etc. etc. . & “keszult 2200 peldanyban egesz bor kotesben”. So looks like limited edition of 2200 in Leather. Not dated but looks like it could be 1977 or earlier. Looks to be published by the Academy. The card case has cut-out for brass locking clip, The brass locking clip keeps the book closed tight, it does have a dummy keyhole, but never had a key as locks & unlocks ( to unlock just squeeze on brass both sides and clip will open). From net could not find another limited edition, but most sites that list the same title, only relate to the common edition, but did not translate all sites most are not selling books. So a rare limited edition in the west, and at time of listing the only one for sale in the west. please view all scans as all Hungarian Text .
