Antoine GALLAND Les mille et une nuits, contes arabes


Les mille et une nuits, contes arabes

Ernest Bourdin, Paris 1840 (S.d.), in-8 (18x26cm), 480pp. et 576pp. et 482pp., 3 volumes reliés.

First edition of 3 false titles, 3 frontispieces including a gold statement, and abundantly illustrated with ornaments and in-text vignettes, as well as some inserts by Andrew Best Leloir, Levilly. Edition produced from the text of 1704 corrected with a dissertation by Baron Silvestre de Sacy.
Bindings in half red heartache of the time. Back with nerves decorated with 4 boxed florets. Traces of friction, especially on the edges. Very rare small freckles and some isolated sheets with browning, but very fresh paper overall. Beautiful copy.
One of the most beautiful illustrated of the romantic contemporary and wood engraving, both by ornaments and by the invention in the drawing.
