Paul et Virginie
Paris: L. Curmer, 1838. Full red morocco, 10 inches tall. A very finely tooled binding by Hatchard & Son with elaborate floral gilt tooling to the spine and boards. Gilt dentelles and all edges. With superb engravings on India paper throughout. There is some rubbing and marking to the binding but it is solid with no splitting. There is some foxing throughout but this is still a splendid copy of this great novel.
