He wrote the volumes 8 to 17 Garnier resumed the work, finishes volume 17 and the work
The book had a success at the time, the first volumes were re-released in order to satisfy the growing demand.

Full calf binding, red edges Very nice set in uniform binding, very fresh, very good condition, slight tear on 2 crowns, slightly damaged corners. Wetting on the binding of volume 25 without harming the paper (visible on the first photo).

Superb copy virtually complete, very important, very beautiful, and in uniform binding. Rarely so well preserved.
Modest reserve price for this set.
