Fashion, Illustrated, Travels - Quantity: 1 - Book

First edition of this interesting travel relationship in Russia, illustrated in first print with a title vignette, a frontispiece and 20 engravings engraved on steel under serpente including 8 originals of Rouargue finely coloured by the hands of the time.

Copy outfitted in a fine period binding in brown half-sorrow, spine with adorned raised bands decorated with the author and the golden title and caissons framed with fine and bold nets stamped in gold and cold, percaline dishes decorated with cold stamping, gilt topstain, moiré paper guards.

Interesting travel relationship, from St. Petersburg to the Caucasus via Finland, Moscow and Nizhny Novgorod, followed by a journey from St. Petersburg to Kamchatka. French journalist in St. Petersburg from 1829 - he will return to Paris definitively in 1863 - Charles de Saint-Julien was an important eyewitness to the history of Russia in the 1850s.

Very nice copy, very decorative binding despite the slight defects of use on the spine, corners of the dishes a little rubbed. Clean and very fresh interior, despite some very pale scattered foxing. Boards under strong paper and tissue paper, very light foxing.
