First edition illustrated on the frontispiece with a profile portrait engraved by Frière after a cut-out by Despréaux, 2 plates engraved by Simonet after Moreau le jeune, and 3 vignettes. One of the rare copies printed on vellum paper, with the plates before the letter, in a handsome binding whose spine irons evoke music (lyre, bagpipes, panpipes), signed by Bozérian.
