CYRANO de BERGERAC: Les œuvres diverses; enriched with intaglio figures. Amsterdam, Desbordes, 1710. 2 vol. in-12 full modern red chagrin, ribbed spine, gilt head. Portrait repeated in each volume and 8 figures by Scherm: 2 are very curious, the first depicting the author in a giant rocket, intended to transport him to the moon, the second depicting an aerostatic machine with which the author rose from the earth. This machine, whose description is given in the book, is a veritable prefiguration of hot-air balloons. Scattered rust.
