Author: LACROIX, PAUL; FOURNIER, EDOUARD AND SERE, FERDINAND
Title: Histoire de L'imprimerie . . .
Description: Paris, Librairie Historique. 1852, 1. Contemp Binder's Half Morocco, 8vo. Sadly, this copy suffers from heavy blotchy foxing throughout the volume, and from some browning to the paper. The binding is generally rubbed and scuffed, and the corners have been somewhat inappropriately repaired with bright green paper, where the marbling of the original paper is dark and restrained. The dramatic lithographed colour plates are still brilliant in colouring, though they too show foxing in the margins. Good.
