A M. L’evesque D.P. [?] Controverse Pacifique sur L’autorite de L’eglise, ou Lettres de M.D.C. A M. L’evesque D.P. Avec les Re’ponses de la Prelat. Paris 1758. Chaubert Libraire, quai des Augustins. Cl. Herissant Libraire-Imprimeur, rue Notre Dame. 381 pages plus title page and ten pages of preliminary introductions, errata and adverts for other books. Lacking frontispiece page. WorldCat gives Franc?ois Favre and Jean Georges le Franc as authors. This volume, collecting letters perhaps written by Louis Jean L’evesque de Pouilly, appears to be a collection letters regarding the authority of the Catholic church (my French is rather weak). Bound in dark calf with a bit of gilt decorating on the spine, an ornamental band at the top of the first page of the text and an illustrated initial beginning the text. In FAIR condition with rather heavy wear to the covers. The leather along the front hinge is missing a layer, exposing another layer beneath. A half inch hole present in the leather at the lower rear edge, along with what appears to be several tiny insect holes. General scuffing, soiling and other wear to the covers. Moderate edgewear, with scuffing and minor loss to the leather. Spine pulled with some leather loss to the foot. Gilt on the spine very worn and almost absent. Covers are weak at the hinges but the text block is intact. A few small ownership signatures to the title page. Heavy browning around the extremities of the first several pages, but absent from the rest. Text clean and readable, perhaps slightly faded. Two dark small dampstains present, one at the center fore edge and the other at the lower page edges. These do not affect the pages themselves. Solid copy of this seemingly scarce work in FAIR condition.
