Title: Oeuvres Complettes de M. de Florian [with his translation of] Don Quichotte de la Mancha Author: Florian, [Jean-Pierre Claris] de Place: Paris Publisher: Chez Fr. Dufart / Chez Deterville Date: 1803 / 1799 Description: Together 11 volumes (8 volumes works, 3 volumes Don Quixote). Engraved plates. (8vo) uniformly bound in full calf, gilt borders, spines tooled in gilt with red morocco onlays, green morocco spine labels, marbled endpapers, all edges marbled. A very handsomely bound set. To modern readers, Florian is chiefly known as the author of pretty fables well suited as reading for the young, but his contemporaries praised him also for his poetical and pastoral novels. Florian was very fond of Spain and its literature, doubtless owing to the influence of his Castilian mother, and he both abridged and imitated the works of Cervantes. Lot Amendments Condition: Some light wear; light foxing; very good. Item number: 245636
