A first edition volume from Georges Louis Le Clerc de Buffon’s Histoire Naturelle, being his encyclopaedic series on natural history, well known for its illustrative plates of animals, nature, and more.
There are four full page plates present, as well as some unusual bookmarks that have been left for the reader.
One finely bound volume in 12mo, 473 pages
On note of condition, this volume is in poor shape, with the binding being incredibly worn and peeling from the spines, as well at the corners. Groups of pages are loosening from the volume. Only four of the full-page plates are present, with the rest missing. There is minor foxing and staining present.
