Chez Deterville, Paris 1805 - A tightly bound 23 volume set of this dictionary - missing volume 24, with Volume 23 finishing with ZYZ. Text in French. Bound uniformly in full brown leather with gilt embossed borders to the boards. There is gilt embossed tooling to the spines and lettering to the two black leather title and number blocks on the spine. Marbled end papers and fore edges. Illustrated with several steel engraved plates to each volume. Cloth page dividers are attached to the head of most volumes.There is rubbing to the head and tail of the spine with a little associated loss and rubbing to the board edges and corners of all volumes to a greater or lesser extent. There is also rubbing to the front boards of Volume 8 and 22 and particularly marked to the rear board of Volume 23. There is a little splitting to the outer hinges of a few boards - most noticeable to Volumes 11 and 20 - though all boards are firmly attached. Some rubbing to the gilt on the spines ad several black leather title and number blocks on the spine strips have a little loss to the edges ( Volumes 5,6,8,15,20 and 21).Previous contemporary name inscripotion to the reverse of the front end paper of all volumes - dated 1812 in the first volume. There is a circular impression mark to the title page of Volume 2 and several adjacent pages of the textblock. The top corner of the rear end paper of Volume 6 has been neatly turned, leaving a neat crease. There is a 3 cm tear to the front paste down adjacent to the inner hinge of Volume 7. Volumes 9 and 10 have an area of rubbing to the top corner of the half title page, with resultant thinning. The lower corner adjaent to the spine stip of Volume 7 and the tail of the spine of Volume 25 have been rubbed with some loss of the leather covering. Volume 10 also has a significant bump to the front edges of the boards near the top corners and Volume 18 has a bump to the top corner of the front board. Several page corners of Volume 22 and Volume 25 have been lightly creased - not affecting the text in anyway. All the textblocks are well preserved, remaining clean and tight with only the odd illustration page having a little toning on the reverse. A very good minus set of this reference set.
