dc.description.abstractThis pair of volumes is a great acquisition for the collection, but one that brings with it questions. Leather binding. Gilt edges. There are six engravings by Moreau le Jeune in each volume. Those six engravings are the source of the questions. Bodemann #222.1 offers detailed comments on mostly different illustrations. A penciled note at the beginning of Volume I has "Suite des Gravures d'apres Moreau ÔÇô 1e Edition 1813." I cannot find anything about a first edition in 1813. And how are we to take "Nouvelle Edition" on the title page of this edition's Volume I? This edition squares with Bassy #29, which was not reviewed because unavailable. The illustrations here do square with Bassy #29b and with the 1826 edition of the same book by Nepveu and de Bure in our collection. For the record, those illustrations in Volume II are MM; "Cobbler and Banker"; "Two Doves"; "Shepherd and King"; "Danube Peasant"; and "Daphnis and Alcimadure." The illustrations are beautifully presented! The spine has deteriorated, and this book was left for too long in someone's basement!en_US
