    Paris: Chez Charles Robustel, 1690-1738. 6 volume set, 10.5 inches tall. A splendid set in full speckled calf with gilt raised bands and dense gilt tooling to the panels. Speckled pink edges.

The volumes are in excellent condition with no splitting but there are a couple of bad scuffs on the boards leaving a small patch of the straw board visible. One engraved chapter heading to each volume. With the armorial bookplates of Le M(arqu)is de Champagne Giffart. This is the First Edition…
