This important story was difficult to publish Velly died in 1759. He only wrote the first 7 volumes. Villaret resumed the work but died in 1766. 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).

Origin: Mr Morot Advisor of Roy. On each volume, glued bookplate (handwritten label). The label was torn on a few volumes.

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