A life (the humble truth). Paris, Victor Havard, 1883. In-8, coral demi-maroquin with corners, cat's eye marbled paper dishes, richly decorated nerfs on the back, marbled paper linings and guards, gold head, preserved blankets and backs (Bretault).
Original edition.
Commonly considered, rightly, as the most difficult original edition of Maupassant's works to find on the market, the beautifully bound copies of the period are very rare. This elegant copy is part of it with this fine nineteenth century binding signed by Joseph Bretault.
Totally free of freckles, it is kept with its covers and back.
Back imperceptibly shaded, small rubbing at the corners, the last sheet, white, has a lack of paper on the edge.
