About this Item

3 volumes. Folio (12 4/8 x 9 inches). 31 exceptionally fine etched plates, and 22 vignettes by Wagrez (some spotting to text leaves). 20th-century half brown morocco, marbled boards, gilt, uncut by McDonald (extremities rubbed). First edition thus, and an attractive copy. A Medieval literary allegorical mosaic best known for its bawdy tales of love, appearing in all its possibilities from the erotic to the tragic. Wagrez' work appeared first at the Paris Salon of 1876 with a portrait of "Eros," and much of his later work drew inspiration from worlds of mythology and romance, the Middles Ages, the Renaissance, and Shakespeare in particular.
