[Arabian Nights] De duysend en eene nacht, Arabische vertellingen

Uit het Fransch [of Antoine Gallandt] vertaalt. Merkelyk verbetert, en vermeerdert, met drie delen, die nooit te voren in het Nederduitsch vertaald geweest zyn. Vierde druk. Amst., S. van Esveldt, n.d. (1792?), 4 vols., (8),384; 444,(2); 453,(1); 462,(2) p., contemp. unif. imitation halfleather.

Vols. 2-4 waterst. in inner margin near spine and paper cover spines dam. Covers rubbed. A very rare complete set, just a few copies in NCC. We found 2 copies offered for sale (in 2013 and still for sale), both descriptions claiming that a frontispiece is lacking in those copies. However, the digitised version of this and other Esveldt editions online are all without a frontispiece. This fourth edition is not dated, but the final part has a 1-page publisher's catalogue at the end that indicates the year of publication. (total 1 work in 4 vols.)
