Oeuvres completes ... Traduites de l'Anglais par A.-J.-B. Defauconpret, traducteur de la collection complete des romans historiques de Sir Walter Scott

Paris: Charles Gosselin, 1824-28. 32 volumes, 12mo, contemporary calf-backed marbled boards, smooth gilt-decorated spines; a nice set with a few minor defects: slight chip to the top of the spine on vol. IV, and dampstaining to a few pages in vol. IX and XVIII. Spiller & Blackburn, p. 180-81, listing the titles in order of publication. The first two, L'Espion and Les Pionniers, were published in three volumes each in 1822 and 1823; they are present here in the second editions of 1824 and 1825, respectively, each in four volumes. Le Corsaaire Rouge, which S & B lists for 1827 in four volumes, are present in four volumes, but dated 1828.There are a total of eight works present, the others as per Spiller and Blackburn: Le Pilote, Precaution, Legends des Treize Republiques [Lionel Lincoln] and Le Dernier des Mohicans. The set was not completed until 1843 in 91 volumes. We offer the first eight works, complete in 32 volumes, all those in print prior to publication of the next work (1829). The Prairie was evidently published from Cooper's manuscript, something that would only have been possible if Cooper were present in Paris at the time. A very handsome uniformly bound set.
