Fables de La Fontaine.

(Moreau, Gustave) (illus.)

Paris: P. Rouquette, 1883. Two 16mo volumes. (viii), 315; (ii), 375pp. From an edition of 180 copies, this is one of eighty on Japon, with an extra suite of engravings. These extras are bound in according to the positions in which the final proofs appear in the text, and together exemplify the three states of the engravings. The result is a volume as fascinating in its fables as in its artistic and bibliographic history. Both bound in full red morocco with gilt titling to spine and gilt ornamented edges and turn-ins. Some cosmetic wear to spines, else fine. Item #30999

Price: $375.00
