FENELON (François de Salignac de la Mothe).

Aventures de Télémaque. Edition Collationnée sur les Trois Manuscrits Connus a Paris.

Engraved frontispiece by Leroux after Vivien.

Two volumes. 8vo. [224 x 133 x 60 mm]. [2]ff, xxiv, 367 pp; [2]ff, 359pp. Contemporary binding of boards covered in red paper, with straight graining. Smooth spines divided into six panels by gilt solid and broken fillets, lettered in the second panel and numbered in the fourth, the others with a large central ornamental tool, plain endleaves, uncut edges. (Slightly rubbed and marked).
Paris: [de l'Imprimerie de P. Didot l'Ainé] chez E. A. Lequien, 1820.

Occasional spotting, but a very good copy. The binding looks from a distance to be goatskin, and is decorated accordingly, but it turns out to be paper. It has worn remarkably well.
