Recent full calf, marbled edges, gilt backstrip, black label. A good clean copy though trimmed a little close to the top edge (but not touching text). Ownership signature at front in ink of Joseph Heughan dated 1899 and an earlier note in ink: "Edition très jolie et très rare..." and two ink initials on the title-page.
§ Well represented in libraries but a scarce little edition in commerce. It was translated by Pierre de Boissat who was probably also responsible for the moral reflections attributed to Jean Baudoin. The text and illustrations were reprinted in 1920 as a private press book in Germany. Item #122933
