FÉNELON, FRANÇOIS DE SALIGNAC DE LA MOTHE. 1651-1715.
Les Aventures de Telemaque. Paris: Imprimerie de Monsieur, 1785.

Contemporary red morocco by Derome le Jeune (signed with his ticket), spines gilt with 6 raised bands, covers bordered in fine gilt decoration, watered silk doublures, edges gilt, modern folding case. Some light foxing to endpapers, guards and some margins, joints starting and some light wear to binding extremities.
Provenance: Jean Baptiste Tilliard (penciled inscription); Emmanuel Martin; L. de Mongermont; Cortlandt Field Bishop (bookplates).
Exhibited: "500 Years of Art in Books," Delaware Art Museum, May 19-June 11, 1972.

Engraver Tilliard's copy of this edition on papier d'Annonay, illustrated with vibrantly hand-colored plates by Parisot after Moitte. The other variant of this edition, with plates by Tilliard after Monnet was found lacking by the publisher because the plates were not printed on papier d'Anonnay and did not harmonize with the text leaves. Emmanuel Martin, who later owned this copy, noted Tilliard's ownership in his autograph notes in pencil on the flyleaf.
