    [Bookbinding] [Bible in French]. Le Nouveau Testament, C' est a dire, La Nouvelle Alliance de nostre Seigneur Jesus Christ. Charenton: Pierre des-Hayes, 1656. [Bound with:] [Bible in French]. Les Pseaumes de David, Mis en rime Francoise. Charenton: Anthoine Cellier, 1661. Approximately 5.75 x 3 inches. Twelvemo in sixes. [2], [174]; [116] pages. Beautifully bound by Anthoine Ruette, the binder to the king (1640-1650) in contemporary full burgundy morocco, covers elaborately ruled and paneled in gilt, spine elaborately ruled and tooled in gilt, five raised bands, gilt board edges and turn-ins, all edges gilt. Some wear and chipping to spine, some wear to boards, holes on boards from where clasps were fixed. Overall, very good. It is unclear if this is a binding made for the king. Gruel, Manuel de L'Amateur de Reliures, p. 160.
