Jean de La Fontaine / Illustrated by A[uguste] DeLierre
FABLES DE LA FONTAINE (2 Volumes)
A. Quantin, Imprimerie-Editeur, 1883. Quarto. The splendid "Edition Illustree" with "75 Planches a L'Eau-Forte" by DeLierre. In handsome bindings of blue three-quarter levant over marbled boards. Top edges are gilt. Raised bands with decorations and lettering in gold. Volume I had a bad bump to the top corner which has been repaired but is still evident if carefully examined. There is a minor and rather inconsequential bump to the bottom corner. An attractive set. Very Good binding.
