[Binding with arms]. MOLIÈRE. Les oeuvres... Nouvelle édition. Revûë, corrigée & augmentée, enrichie de figures en taille-douce. A Paris, par la Compagnie des libraires, 1718. 8 volumes in-12, contemporary havana calf, 5-ribbed spine, garnet-toned title and giblets, ornate coffers, boards bordered with a double gilt fillet with gilt arms in the center, speckled edges (minor defects including dull headpieces and corners, others restored; small spot in the margin of one plate; foxing). Edition illustrated with a portrait of Molière engraved by B. Audran after Mignard, and 31 copper-engraved plates. These illustrations faithfully reflect the costumes that actors might have worn at the time of publication, in the early 18th century, giving this edition a particular charm. A shared edition published under the collective name of the Compagnie des libraires, one or other of these co-publishers is mentioned on the title page of volume one; on this copy, it is Ribou. Provenance: Langeac coat of arms.
