[COLPORTAGE]

Histoire de Valentin et Orson, très-hardis, très-nobles et très-vaillans chevaliers, Fils de l’Empereur de Grèce et neveux du très-vaillant et très-chrétien Pépin, Roi de France.

Montbéliard, Imprimerie de Deckherr, [early 19th century, after 1813].

Small in-4 (185 x 160 mm), 120 pp. paperback, illustrated cover preserved, formerly placed in an antique vellum portfolio binding.

A charming copy of this adaptation of one of the most popular tales of the Middle Ages, with a cover illustrated with two large woodcuts showing Orson spotting Valentin on a tree and Valentin fighting a snake.

While many editions of this work were printed in Troyes, Lille or Rouen, this one from the Deckherr press in Montbéliard seems much rarer (only two copies in the CCFr).
