Oeuvres Complete De Moliere.
Moliere. [Jean - Baptiste Poquelin.].
Paris: Garnier Freres. Two volumes. 6.75" x 4.5". 803, 823pp. Red pebbled cloth, spine in compartments, gilt spine lettering, rules and decorations. All edges gilt. Both volumes have mild soiling, and the front board of volume one has a rough one inch scrape long the bottom edge. Otherwise this is an attractive vg+ or better set. This good French language edition of the great playwright includes 10 hand colored plates. The subjects are all portraits of characters from the plays, except the frontispiece, which is a portrait of Moliere himself. While there is a bit of darkening to the margins of most of the plates, they are nicely executed and the colors are vivid and bright. Hardcover (Item ID: 1823)
