Four 19th century French works in handsome bindings.


A handsome collection of four French 19th century works in bindings.

Works include:
Enchiridion ad Sacrarum Disciplinarum Cultores - Precious excerpts of authors and works concerning sacred disciplines, divided by the centuries, starting from the first century of the Christian era.

1894 Etude sur la Propriete Litteraire Artistique et Industrielle – Study on literary, artistic and industrial property (summary of legislation and case law) by Adolphe Bourdeillette

Etrange Fortune (Strange Fortune) – The author, Paul Cunisset-Carnot, was a high-magistrate, lawyer, soldier, and politician French . He was also author of hunting, fishing, historical and literary studies. Published by Flammarion, with the original wraps bound in.

La Jeunesse du Roi Henri (The Youth of King Henry), Complete in three books bound into one volume, in quarto size (a larger format). Unique in no title page, unsure where these were extracted from or year of publication.

Physical Attributes -

Four books, each with leather spines and marbled or decorative paper boards. All have raised bands and gilt to spines. One is in quarto, others are likely in large octavo size.

Condition -

See pictures. Shelf wear with a vintage patina. The spines display well, and will look great on the shelf. Within, pages are toned. There's an occasional annotation, water tide line, foxing spot, edge tear, etc. They look like they were done on a moderate budget (enough wealth to have them bound, but not the best bookbinder or copy of the work).
