By Victor Adam,

Paris, France: Maison Martinet/Godard., [1855]. First edition thus. Decorative Boards. Good. An very interestingly hilarious view of Parisian characters in the middle of the19th century. Oblong quarto, 10 1/2" x 13 1/4", Lithographed title page (same as cover) + 20 heavy paper pages (complete) containing many terrific vignette lithographs per page but with moderate scattered foxing throughout--still impressive visually. A good copy only over all with significant shelf wear, illustrated cover loose, both covers worn and rubbed with moderate soiling, and hinges broken but internal binding solid, front flyleaf torn through, a private library bookplate on the inside cover. Despite the foxing the qualityof the paper makes this well worth rebinding. Priced accordingly.
