Etching by Félix Bracquemond (1833-1914) in frontispiece.

Half shagreen binding with corners, adorned with gilded fillets on the covers, a gilded composition on the spine, gilded top edge, marbled endpapers. A bound copy for E. Janneau of the 1899 class of the École Polytechnique, with his name and class at the bottom of the spine.

In average condition due to the presence of numerous spots of foxing, the other flaws are minor, light friction on the binding.
