Parisiis: Excudebat Franciscus Muguet Regis & illustrissimi Archiepiscopi Parisiensis typographus, 1681. Folio, 10.25" x 15". [32] pp, 1712 col., [48] pp [as issued]. Engraved headpiece of David and his harp above the first Psalm and several fine engraved initials in text. Rebound in quarter leather with brown cloth boards, gilt lettered spine labels and raised spine bands, new endpapers, red fore-edges. Title page erroneously calls this volume part 2 of the Psalms [Nos. 80-150]; but the text is complete with Psalms 1-150. Title page lightly dusted with old ink inscriptions at head of title and a small institutional rubberstamp at bottom of page. Library bookplate on front pastedown. Very Good.

The illustration of David and his harp above the first Psalm is by Gérard Audran (1640 - 1703). Audran, originally from Lyon, was considered one of the greatest French engravers of his time.
