Original edition.
"This book is the rarest of all Restif's books, either because the edition was destroyed en bloc, or because the copies were systematically sought to be destroyed one after the other... The entire edition had to be cut off and the 249-252 apges of Volume III are almost always missing" (Lacroix).
Good well bound and complete copy of pp. 249-252 of Volume III. Rare freckles.
