A rare first edition of Florian's Fables, published two years before his death in imprisonment during the French Revolution. This edition carries six engravings (frontispiece and one to start each chapter). The book ends with Florian's poem Tobie.
This copy is in very good condition. The leather is lightly worn to the joints and rubbed to the corners but remains in good order. The pages are clean and the binding is secure. A very attractive copy.
