Paris Chez Duchesne 1755 16mo. Two volumes: cxxiv, 283, errata; 407, (5)pp. Volume I contains " Description de la Germanie et des Moeurs des ses Habitans", in French, paired with "De Situ Moribus et Populis Germaniae", in Latin. Volume II contains "Vie de Julius Agricola", in French, followed by "Julii Agricolae Vita Scriptore Tacito", in Latin. The book is bound in mottled calf with a paneled spine,and with oval leather inserts in both front and rear boards (probably replacing long-gone portrait cameos). These were done by bookbinder Joanna Bliss of Connecticut in 1981, who restored the bindings. All edges are stained red and there are ribbon markers in each volume. Endpapers are marbled paper of the period. Faint waterstain to the bottom margin up to page 6 of volume 2, and minor wear to spine ends, else very good. An attractive pair,particularly with the leather inserts on the covers. Two volumes:
