GIRAUD (Pierre). Various works. In Paris, with the author and Méquignon, [1801-1805]. 14 [of 15] parts in one volume in-4, contemporary basane racine, smooth spine decorated, red title-piece, gilt roulette bordering the boards and at the edges (tail-cap and one corner rubbed, upper bit slightly cracked at head and tail; one part missing). Rare collective edition of studies and projects by Pierre Giraud (1744-1814), architect of the Department of the Seine. Each part is preceded by a particular title, and is sometimes found separately, but this collection is uncommon. Missing here is the 2nd part indicated in the table, comprising a project of "commodités portatives". This copy is illustrated with 14 copper-engraved plates, some of them folding, with no apparent lack (except for the 2nd piece); 24 plates are announced in the title, the editor has most probably counted the 8 plates on prisons that did not appear, but we cannot guarantee this copy as complete with its illustrations. 1.
