[RELIURE AU VERNIS MARTIN] LA ROCHEFOUCAULD, François, duc de.
Maximizing and moral reflection. Stereotypical editing. Paris, Pierre Didot the elder and Firmin Didot, An X (1802). In-18 (133 x 81 mm) of 120 pp.; red half-basane, flat and back decorated with a marbled decoration according to the process called Martin varnish (binding of the time).
Example of small format bindings called "Martin varnish" process developed by Théodore-Pïerre Bertin (1751-1819).
"In the field of binding, it is also necessary to credit Theodore-Pierre Bertin for the production of so-called odourless varnish bindings, also incorrectly called "varnish Martin" by reference to the varnish developed in Paris in 1728 by the Martin brothers in the field of furniture; this varnish made it possible to obtain at a lower cost the varnished aspect of oriental lacquers then newly updated in France" (Bnf website: binding.

Cracked dishes and backs, impact on the outside edge with a small lack on both dishes, slightly blunt corners.
