L'historial du jongleur. Chroniques et légendes françaises.
A la Librairie de Firmin Didot, 1829. Gothic-decorated collection of French legends, including the tales "Le Droit de Nopçage," "Le Jugement de Dieu," "La Cour de Jussienne," "Le Voeu du Faisan," and "Le Dict des Crieries et Encombrements de Paris." Didot printed the title-page in red and black and embellished the text itself with "ornées d'initiales, vignettes, et fleurons imités des manuscrits originaux," several of which are colored in blue, green, red, pink, silver, or => gold, or combinations thereof. Two of the stories open with illustrated borders, and another one has a full-page illustration preceding the text; notes follow the stories to help readers better understand the "antique" text. Provenance: Author's inked inscription "A mon bon ami, Amand Lemire [/] E. Morice" on front free endpaper. From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.
