Anonymous. A sequel to the Abbé Prévost's novel Manon Lescaut numbered as the third and fourth parts of that work, variously attributed to N. de Courcelles (cf. Barbier), Choderlos de Laclos, and to Prévost himself. The catalogue of the Bibliothèque nationale suggests the imprint may be fictitious, on typographical grounds. Half-title and running-title read 'Suite De L'Histoire De Manon Lescaut'. Title-page printed in red and black.

Copy Notes Bound as volumes IX--X of a ten-volume set with editions of Prévost's Mémoires et avantures d'un homme de qualité (q.v.) and Manon Lescaut (q.v.) published in Amsterdam in 1756. Probably the set bought in Swallow Street (together with a copy of Dacier's Horace, q.v. and Richardson's Grandisson in French, q.v. for £2.0.0, in all 27 vols) 3 January 1794 (Jnl 2, p. 325). Thomas Boone is recorded at 91, Swallow Street in the 1802--1805 editions of Holden's annual list of coaches, waggons, carts, vessels, &c.

Binding C18th mottled calf, gilt-tooled spines, dark red morocco spine-labels, marbled edges and endpapers. Lettered as 'Tom. IX--X' of separately published editions of Mémoires et avantures d'un homme de qualité and Manon Lescaut (see above) but not actually published with it in an integral edition.
