Monuments et mémoires publiés par l’Académie des inscriptions et belles‐lettres is a quarter leather binding printed in 1899. The book measures approximately 35.8 cm high, 28.9 cm wide, and 4.1 cm deep. The hollow back quarter binding has dark brown leather at the spine over five false raised bands, and marbled paper covering the boards. Overall, the book is in fair condition. The leather at the spine is deteriorated, with significant abrasion and delamination throughout, and flaking leather at the head and tail. The marbled paper is abraded throughout, with delamination and loss at the board edges. The boards are slightly delaminated at the corners. The binding remains intact, but the lower board is detached from the textblock. The sewing remains intact throughout the textblock. The lower flyleaf is fully detached. The upper board remains attached, but there are breakage points of the inner hinge and the upper flyleaf hinge is compromised.
