First edition thus. 2 vols. Original blue cloth with gilt titles to the spines, in dustwrappers. Title pages printed in red and black. "Printed upon laid paper of fine quality specially made for The Navarre Society". Illustrated with 2 portrait frontispieces and 10 photogravures after original drawings by Antoine Gaymard. A very good set, the bindings square and firm with some minor spotting to the boards, a touch of fading to the heads of the spines and the inner heads of the boards, and a small nick to the head of the spine of volume 2. The contents with scattered foxing to the text-block edge are otherwise clean throughout and free from any previous owners' inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the near-fine original dustwrappers which have just a little toning to the spines. Not price-clipped (1/11/6 to the front flaps).
A nicely produced edition of the writings of the notorious Jacques Casanova, scarce in the original dustwrappers.
