Paris, F.-A. Didot & G. Debure 1782.
12mo. 153, [3 blank]p.
Contemporary gilt-ruled crushed red morocco, stars in the corners, flat spine with gilt stars and title, board edges and turn-ins gilt, all edges gilt, green silk marker.
The engraved ticket of Nicolas-Denis Derome dated 1785 is pasted in the upper left corner of the front blank flyleaf. However, the binder fixed his engraved tickets to the title-page, so this is a post mortem effort.
This was simultaneously issued in the Collection Des Moralistes Anciens. A clean copy, nineteenth-century armorial bookplate of Mr. Dubois (a ?brazier with three stars), lithographed bookplate of New York attorney C.W. Andrews.
