Dictionnaire Historique et Critique de Pierre Bayle. Nouvelle Edition
Paris: Desoer. 1820. Nouvelle Edition, augmentee de notes extraites de Chaufepie, Joly, La Monnoie, L.-J. Leclerc, Leduchat, Prosper Marchand, etc etc. 16 volumes. Tome Premiere: [iv] (half-title, title), vi (Avant Propos), xxx (Discours preliminaire de la onzieme edition), [ii] (errata), 554 (last blank), [2] (publisher's adverts); a page-stub follows the title-page but it is unclear if anything has been removed - the text seems complete. The final volume contains the prefaces to the earlier editions, a life of Bayle and an index. Contemporary half morocco and marbled paper boards, spines richly gilt, raised bands; edges and endpapers marbled (binder's label of Frank Kerslake, Coventry St, London). Some foxing, but generally a nice clean set. Owner's name in all volumes (on binder's preliminary blank) and his pencilled index on a rear blank page in a few volumes. Most volumes have had a bookplate removed from the front endpaper, but on most this is scarcely noticeable and on the others only a little more so. The corners a little rubbed, as is the surface of the paper on the boards, but a very nice set - un tres bon examplaire. [THIS PRICE INCLUDES ECONOMY AIR POSTAGE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD] .
