Cervantes, Miguel de.
Don Quixote
London, Hachette, 1930

Internally this is a perfect copy. The illustrations are radiant and there is no soiling, foxing or damage of any kind. The covers are rubbed at the edges and slightly bowed. The color in the cover title has been bleached out. The line through the sails of the windmill is as a result of double scanning (the book is too large for my scanner) .

Yellow back. 72 pages. 31 of Loroiux's most inspired and delightful illustrations to the tale of the delusional knight and his sidekick.

The cloth backing is worn at hinge ends. The hinges are sound. A 1inch piece missingfrom the top of page 44 not affecting the illustration. No other markings. Binding shaken.

Fables de La Fontaine
Paris: Hachette: 1929,,

1929. A very rare and celebrated book. Perhaps Lorioux'x most famous. The town and country rats are especially mischievous! The interior of this copy is fine: no markings, no tears, no wear. The covers are not as good. The spine needs re-binding. The corners of the boards are rubbed.
