A BEAUTIFULLY-EXECUTED CONTEMPORARY CALLIGRAPHIC MANUSCRIPT COPY of this extremely rare book. 41 pp. plus etched frontispiece on Chinese paper depicting Troyes by Deseaube after Fleury, and an additional lithograph depicting the Porte Saint-Jacques, that no longer exists (the printed edition was unillustrated). Since only eight (8) copies of the book were printed, it was surely unobtainable to all but a select few--and thus somebody executed this wonderful manuscript copy on fine bluish laid paper, with huge margins. 4to. Bound in pebbled morocco-backed boards. Spine worn but structurally solid. Internally FINE AND BRIGHT.
