Paris: Librairie de L'enfance et de la Jeunesse, P.C. Lehuby, [1843].

First edition. Superb and fine original publisher's full polychrome binding consisting of brightly gilt block center cover design with green, violet blue, while and red-brown colored cloth, spine and rear cover with similar though less extravagant designs. Original yellow endpapers. Exquisite engraved title and 20 full-page engraved plates by Trichon, Bertrand and Poujet after designs by Bouchot. A stunningly fine copy of the binding. Foxing to prelims, else contents fine. This ornate cloth binding type is rarely seen in this near pristine condition.
