EXERCISES TO THE RULES AND CONSTRUCTION OF FRENCH SPEECH; Consisting of Passages extracted out of the best French authors
London, P. Vaillant et al 1799, 16th edition, hb. Bound in full period leather with tree calf design. Small 8vo, pp. xi, 271. This is the "sixteenth edition, revised and corrected, with great improvements, by M. Des Carrieres."
¶ On the front free endpaper, there is an inscription in a very elegant hand, dated August 18th, 1802. The names are partially indecipherable, but the location is noted as "Royal Academy". The front joint is just starting, but remains tight. The front board is slightly bowed. The pages are remarkably free of soiling or foxing, although in several places the printing has faded a bit (but is still perfectly legible). In all, the book is in quite good condition.
