FABLES DE FLORIAN w/Prospectus

Paris: Les Freres Gonin de Lausanne, 1937. Very Good binding. Item #4242

Folio. 155, [1 (blank)] pp. Limited Edition, number 4 of 115 copies, signed by Chopard on the limitation page. Unbound and printed on single folios, all laid into printed wrapper with additional blank folios at front and rear of the book. This is housed in a parchment-backed chemise titled in red with a white, imitation levant-grained cloth, which is in turn enclosed in a slipcase of the same cloth and trimmed in parchment--quite a package! 12 full-page lithographs in addition to numerous in-text lithographs. The blank folios are toned from the wrapper; wrapper has a closed tear at the top of the front joint; parchment spine of the chemise is somewhat soiled; slipcase is soiled with joints that are quite weak--two splits have been mended, but remain tender. A wonderful edition by the Gonin brothers of the 18th century French poet's fables, beautifully illustrated by Gaston Albert Chopard.
