Book Description

Three volumes in contemporary half red leather and gilt (recently restored) with red boards. Marbled boards. Three Volumes. 1) Chants Guerriers et Patriotiques. Chansons Bachiques. 2) Chansons et Chansonnettes. Chansons Burlesques et Sateriques. 3) Chansons Choisies. Romances, Rowdes et Compaintes. Each volume has two engraved title pages as well as the printed title page. Each of the songs is comprised of four leaves / 8 sides, has its title, with credits for music and illustrations - There are music, lyrics and beautiful engravings for each song. Each separate song has the printer information at the bottom of the last leaf, leaving me to wonder if this was originally issued as a part work ? Complete.
Dealer Notes
The red boards have a touch of darkening and a little marking to them, but presentable. The leather and gilt are clean and bright. Internally in sound, strong condition, but with moderate foxing throughout. The text and illustrations are still strongly visible through the foxing though.
