Published by Librairie de L. Hachette & Cie, Paris, 1869. An uncommon first edition.
A good copy of this uncommon softback book in its original publisher's wraps. Some wear to cover and a few nicks to extremities. Fading and creasing to spine.
This type of French books from this era are often very brittle with disbound pages, but this volume has remained intact. The spine is quite worn and a little fragile.
Text is good - there is some minor scattered age spotting to text and edges, but mild. Pages are still bright and all still bound. Rough cut edges, as issued.
Text in French.
244pp + 1pp Contents + 1pp Errata.
Weight approximately 317g (unpacked).
189mm high x 119mm wide x 20mm deep.
