Complete works of Buffon With the Linnean nomenclature and classification of Cuvier. Annotated by M. Flourens - Garnier Frères, booksellers, no date (end 19th) - complete edition in 12 volumes - twelve strong quarto volumes (27.5 cm X 18.5 cm) bindings in half leather of the time, spine with raised bands adorned with fillets, titles, volume numbers and name of the author in golden characters. 686, 667, 594, 680, 597, 586, 624, 630, 670, 558, 608 and 824 pp - 27.5 x 18.5 cm

Illustrated with many colour plates out of text and illustrations in black and white.

Many themes: birds, quadrupeds, monkeys... etc... etc...

Complete inside but plenty of foxing, more or less important depending on the volume and pages.
The plates are well preserved (protected by silk paper) and the colours are still very vivid.
Good condition of the bindings but with friction on the covers and wear on some corners and spine.
The covering of a cover was damaged by moisture with small damage on two flyleaves.
Despite the reported flaws, this series is in a good general condition.

A beautiful set.

Weight: 20 kg, sending (secure) via mondial relay every time if the destination will allow.
If there is a surplus of port, it will be systematically refunded.
