London, 1796. 2 volumes in-8 in half brown basane with smooth spine decorated with roulettes, author (Duclos, sic), title and tomaison gilt - spotting, beginning of crack in the tail of the first bit of T 2. - 415 pp, 1 frontispiece and 7 engraved plates ; [2 ff.], 398 pp, 1 frontispiece and 6 engraved plates. This edition is a counterfeit of the London edition of 1796, which was printed in 1812 with the peculiarities pointed out by Cohen (wavy line, title in 7 lines). The plates have been retouched by Delvaux, hence the letters R.p.D. in fine lines on the plates (9 in this copy). A well-made copy with rare freckles.
