Published by G. Charpentier, Editeur, Paris, 1879. Scarce first edition set as issued.

A good (to very good) set of 2 original paperbacks in original printed wraps. This type of French books from this era are often very brittle with disbound pages, but this set has remained intact. Covers with some sun fading and minor spotting and wear with a few marks.

Text is good - there is scattered age spotting throughout, but this is not severe. Pages are still bright and there are still some top edges remaining uncut, as issued. Rough cut vertical and lower edges, as issued. Occasional minor nick or flaw to page edge, but a desirable set of its type.

Text in French.

Tome Premier: 332pp.

Tome Second: 409pp.

Weight approximately 789g (the set - unpacked).

Approx Dimensions: 

Each volume 186mm high x 119mm wide x 20-25mm deep.
