About this Item

Three parts in two volumes, octavo, contemporary tree sheep, worn, joints cracked, ends of spines chipped, bit scuffed, neat presentation inscription at foot of first half title with blind stamp of the collector at edge of half title and with note at foot of verso regarding Cochin, who engraved the title-page vignettes. The same collector's blind stamp is on the edge of the second half title, and there is a manuscript biographical notice about Marmontel neatly tipped to blank end-leaf, light waterstain to bottom edges, occasional foxing, second part of second volume has one leaf a bit soiled, and there is some worming to outer edges, straying into text on about 8 leaves but not affecting legibility; all half titles and errata leaves are present. Certainly not a great set, but still respectable. Marmontel clearly has been influenced by Voltaire's treatise on poetry, which had appeared only a few years before, but Marmontel expands his mentor's focus on dramatic poetry to include critical remarks and essays on the full spectrum and variety of French poetry. Tchemerzine VII, 453. First edition. Rare. Because of the value of this item, extra postal insurance or registry fees may be required. Bookseller Inventory # 0695
