Some light browning in the text, as well as some sporadic and light soiling. The magnificent plates, for the greater part printed by Lemercier and for a smaller part by Plista, which are all but one protected with tissue guards, overall are clean and crisp.
The folio edition was published the year before by Auguste Bry without text and is virtually unobtainable. On the very few occasions that it comes to the market, it is priceless. The edition by Curmer forms the basis of all later editions by other Parisian publishers in respectively 1853, 1854 and 1858.
