Oraisons Funebres Composées Par Monsieur Flechier, Abbe De Saint Severin De L Academie Francoise
Paris: , 1680. Seconde Edition. Good in a 17th century binding of full leather covered boards with five raised bands on the spine with only fragments of the backstrip remaining, but enough to show gilt tool work and gilt text in the compartments. In subsequent years to preserve the binding the spine area was heavily varnished. In the area where the backstrip has been lost the underlying sewing supports (cords) are visible. The front and rear joints seem to be cracked but the varnish continues to hold the book together with the aid of the still strong front and rear hinges. A 16mo measuring 6 1/4" by 3 1/2" with two recent prior owner's names on the first free end page. 326 pages of text.
