Olivier 2547; Wassermann (Brüssel, 1921), No. 1146; Cortlandt-Bishop Library V,225. Outstanding French 18th century binding! Contemporary red morocco, the sides entirely covered with a rich gilt tooled design of leaves, arabesques, stars, shells and pointillé, fleur-de-lys in the corners, panelled gilt back, with fleur-de-lys decoration, gilt edges, coat-of-armes of Louis Joseph Xavier de France, Duc de Bourgogne, brother of Louis XVI. He lived only from 1751 to 1761, hence bindings with his arms are extremely uncommon. From the libraries of E.von Wassermann (1921, item 1146), and Cordlandt Bishop (V,225). Olivier lists only five bindings with his arms („Les volumes à ses armes sont des plus rares, ce prince étant mort á l‘ ge de 10 ans“). In a finely manufactured preservation box with title on spine. Rare!
