Truly gorgeous olive green morocco by Bisiaux with his ticket, boards heavily gilt with outer narrow interlacing gilt, double gilt fillets framing a wider interlacing tooling, inner frame with pointille facing inwards and corner pieces, spines flat lavishly tooled in gilt forming compartments, edges gilt, inner dentelle heavily gilt; pasteboards in gilt-tooled brown morocco and silk linings, a little rubbed, first volume with head of spine presenting small loss, gently rubbed on hinges and corners, else fine and remarkably well preserved. Soiling and browning to a few pages, mainly to plates, else fine. Important edition of Suetonius´s works on the lives of the Ceasar´s. Carefully produced edition, heavily annotated and illustrated with two frontispieces, twelve plates with the portraits and medals of the Caesars and two additional engraved medallion-portraits of Julius Caesar and Horatius. A most desirable copy, bound by Bisiaux in a lavishly tooled olive green morocco, with vellum endpapers. Provenance, from the library of the celebrated bibliophile Renouard (N° 1735); library of John Delaware Lewis, with ex libris on front pastedown; library of Geoffrey D. Hobson, large ex libris on both volumes. Brunet V, 583 (?Trés recommendable?). Dibdin II, 443.
