About this Item: Les fr?res Estienne (pr. by Moreau), Paris, 1758. First edition: Jouve's romanticized account of Zenobia, legendary queen of Palmyra; the Monthly Review of June, 1758, made particular note of both the vivacity and floridness of the author's style. There was a La Haye edition of the same year; the present Estienne printing is significantly less common, with WorldCat locating => only six U.S. institutional holdings. Binding: Contemporary mottled calf, front cover with elaborate gilt-stamped EC monogram and coronet, spine with gilt-stamped leather title-label and gilt compartment decorations. Marbled endpapers and all edges marbled; original silk bookmark present and intact. 12mo (16.7 cm, 6.6"). [4], xxiv, 357, [3] pp. DeBacker-Sommervogel, IV, 860. Brunet gives only the Hague edition of the same year. Binding as above, leather scuffed and rubbed with spine head chipped yet gilt still bright. Pages gently age-toned and cockled, with some offsetting front and rear from the binding and scattered small spots of foxing; a few corners bumped. A handsome volume and an interesting 18th-century perspective on the near-mythic rebel queen. Seller Inventory # 36250
