Tesniere, Marie-Helene, editor. Introduction by Emmanuel Le Roy Ladurie.

New Haven: Yale University Press, 1995. First edition. Very good folio-sized (oversized) hardcover in very good dust jacket. Light wear to the edges of the boards with bumping to the head and heel of the spine. The dj has light wear along the edges with minor scuffing to the covers. 480 pages with illustrations, notes, chronology, and index. A nice work tracing the history of the Bibliotheque Nationale de France based on the exhibition of 1995. Special shipping rates due to this work's size. (Item ID: 14554)
