COLLECTION DE 26 [sic] VUES DE PARIS Prises au Daguerreotype, Prises en Taille Douce sur Acier.

np (Paris), nd (c, 1845). Item #97-9641

28 engraved views of Paris, oblong 10.5 x 13, gilt stamped embossed red boards, covers heavily rubbed and soiled, extremities bumped and frayed, hinges loose, bookplate of famed collector Otto Orren Fisher, ink gift presentation inscription dated Oct. 1857, eps foxed with small stain at gutter at front, tissues present with some spotting, soil, folds and tears, plates with minor foxing and soil in margins else remarkably beautiful and bright, with small paper label attached to title page from "Lecrivain, M. d'Estampea, 184 Galerie de Valoia." This title has a somewhat muddy bibliography, not helped by this copy calling for 26 plates when 28 are present. Still, a beautiful collection of engravings.

Price: $595.00
