A luxurious edition of Scarron's Roman Comique printed on large Hollande paper, the complete work in two volumes. Lovely half morocco bindings with corners signed Lavaux.

"Le Roman comique" is a novel by Paul Scarron, the first part of which was published in 1651 and the second part in 1657. Scarron died while he was working on the third part of the novel, which remains unfinished. The adjective "comic" in its title indicates both that it is pleasant and humorous and that it is comedy.

Two duodecimo volumes of liii-370pp. + 313pp. Complete 2/2.

Lovely half morocco bindings with corners signed Lavaux, with ribbed spines, titles, volume numbers and year in gilded stamping. Gilded fillets lining the edges of the leather on the covers. Gilded top edge. Preserved covers and spines.

Etched frontispiece in black and white. Black and white initials, headbands and culs-de-lampe.

Lovely copies. Bindings in good condition, faded spines. Insides immaculate. Uncropped pages.
