About This Item

Paris: L. Curmer, 1843. Dark green morocco spine and tips, 4 raised bands gilt. Green marbled boards, all edges sprinkled red. Some shelfwear and bumping on edges, especially bottom of lower cover, though this is a very sturdy binding. Spine expertly repaired with original spine laid down. Top corner of lower cover is new and beautifully matched to other tips. An engraved title page dated 1842 appears followed by the usual 1843 title page. Owner bookplates, one over the other, on front pastedown. Endpapers and pastedowns have some staining which extends into margins of book not affecting text or plates. First page of Sleeping Beauty repaired at top with Japanese paper. Heavily illustrated with Blanchard engravings after Paquet, Marvy, Jeanron, Jacque and Beauce. All of Perrault's most famous fairy tales included beautifully illustrated both in full page and in text. Probably the finest Perrault work extant.. First Edition. Half-Leather. Very Good/No Jacket. Illus. by M. Blanchard. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Trade.
