Description
Voltaire - Contes et Romans - 1927
Bindings, Literature - Quantity: 5 - Book

A precious copy of this set of Voltaire's works published by Piazza, one of the first 100 of the first print run on Japon Impérial paper (No. 62) before the 1500 copies on pure thread laid paper, which are already attracting much less interest.

A superb copy, magnificently bound in full ochre morocco, spines adorned with gilded embossing the the compartments. Gilded top edges. In a lovely marbled paper-covered paperboard slipcase with leather trim. Preserved original covers and spines.

A lovely typographical edition, complete in five volumes, with lovely ornamentation by P. Courtois.

In very good condition, well preserved as a whole. To be noted is that the front joint of Volume 3 is lightly cracked. Very clean inside, uncropped. Sound slipcase. A lovely copy.
