Etrennes aux Enfans des Deux Sexes.
Paris: Chez Le Coeur, [1790?]. Oblong small folio, 17 leaves including the engraved hand-colored title and 8 engraved hand-colored plates with facing engraved text. Original blue printed wrappers bound in modern green quarter cloth and marbled boards. Pages with some toning and spotting, a lovely copy. First and only edition of this extremely rare series of hand-colored plates with text, showing a girl and a boy equally engaged in drawing, studying geography, orating, flying in a balloon, playing music, gardening, fencing, and using a telescope. The engraver is probably Louis le Coeur, active 1790-1806. No copy recorded at auction; only three other copies located: Huntington, Princeton and Bibliotheque Nationale De France. Not in Gumuchian.
