SCARCE TITLE IN WONDERFUL FULL MOTTLED CALF

Les Voyages de Kang-Hi ou Nouvelles Lettres Chinoises.

Paris: Didot, 1810. 2 volume set, 6 1/2 inches tall. Scarce utopian novel in superb full mottled calf from the beginning of the 19th century. With gilt bands, twin labels and very fine gilt tooling to the panels. Speckled edge. A neat ink owner's name 'Stewart' at the head of the first title page. A remarkable work purporting to be the travels of a Chinese explorer in Europe 100 years in the future. A splendid example of this rare and fantastical work. From the library of a Northumberland Country House.
