C CORNELII TACITI OPERA OMNIA 7 Vols Volumes 1776
L F Delatour, 1776. A set of 7 small full leather covered volumes of the works of Tacitus in a French edition. The bindings are tan with gilt titles and decoration on the spine, the title plate is red and the volume number plate is black on all of them.

The page edges are dyed red. The end papers are marbled and are all in very good condition. Internally the books are mainly clean and tightly bound, there is no foxing but there are occasional wear marks. The full title of the books is 'Taciti Opera Supplementis, Notis et Dissertationibus'. Illustrated by Gabriel Brotier, they were published in Paris. The text is mainly in Latin although there are some passages in Greek. For sale as a set. Very rare, particularly so old and in such good condition.
