Oeuvres Philosophiques et Dramatiques.Amsterdam, [no publisher stated], 1772 Stock Code: 128660
NotesA highly appealing collected edition of Diderot's philosophical and theatrical works, printed in the year that the publication of the Encyclopédie finally finished. There were two editions of Diderot's works published in Amsterdam that year, the other being that of Marc Michel Rey, though this is generally accepted to have priority.
6 volumes, small octavo (191 x 92 mm). Contemporary mottled sheep, recent red morocco labels, spines tooled in gilt, blue marbled endpapers.
Engraved frontispiece and 14 plates.
Light worming to spines, chips to a couple of spine ends (more substantial at head of spine of vol. II), a couple of patches of rubbing to covers, joints intact though endpapers splitting at hinges, some rubbing and chipping to endpapers, some toning and occasional faint foxing to pages. An attractive set with all half-titles.
