Scarron, Paul, [Abraham Wolfgang]. Les Oeuvres De Monsieur Scarron. Suivant la copie imprimée à Paris [i.e. Amsterdam?: Abraham Wolfgang?, 1668.] Pierre Mortier, 1695.

Beautiful copy, sturdy and clean bindings. The leather shows scuffing marks: some parts missing from the 7 headdresses, start of a crack on 4 of the joints, the tailcap of volume 9 is split over the length, not affecting the solidity of the binding. Immaculate interiors.
