Aventures merveilleuses d’Huon de Bordeaux / The wonderful adventures of Huon of Bordeaux’ edited by Gaston Paris. With decorations by Eugène Grasset and coloured plates by Manuel Orazi. Published 1898 by L’académie française, Paris.

Description: Huon of Bordeaux is the title character of a 13th-century French epic poem… He is a knight who, after unwittingly killing Charlot, the son of Emperor Charlemagne, is given a reprieve from death on condition that he fulfill a number of seemingly impossible tasks: he must travel to the court of the Amir in Babylon and return with a handful of the amir’s hair and teeth, kill the Amir’s mightiest knight, and three times kiss the Amir’s daughter, Esclarmonde. All these Huon eventually achieves with the assistance of the fairy king Oberon.
