CH. Le BEAU
History of the Lower Empire, beginning with Constantine the Great. Paris, Didot, Ledoux and Tenré, 1819-1820.
13 volumes in-8, long grain Empire green morocco, straight cold gilt castors on the covers with gilt numerals in the center, spine with 5 ornamented ribs, inner castor, gilt edges (period binding).
Work which was first published in 1756 and which was republished many times.
The last volume is a table whose edges are here still glued with gold, which proves that despite numerous re-editions, it was hardly consulted.
Nice copy with the number LMC, not listed by Olivier and Guigard.
Color of the binding unevenly faded, pale freckles.
