Description
Dulaure/ Rouargue - Histoire physique, civile et morale de Paris. Septième édition augmentée - 1839
Biography, Cartography, Fine Bindings, History, Illustrated, Topography - Quantity: 4

Very good copy bound in 4 beautifully-crafted romantic bindings.
Seventh edition, the most complete, partly original since expanded with new notes and an appendix of this classic Histoire de Paris by Dulaure, which was first published n 1821-1825.

The illustrations include 57 plates, 5 of which are line-engraved archaeological plates by Ambroise Tardieu, the others are views engraved on steel by Rouargue Frères and 4 fold-out maps enhanced in colour.

Luxury glazed eggplant calfskin half bindings, spines with 4 wide bands adorned with two mosaic labels and a rich decoration of gilded stamping.

Decorative set. The leather has discreet defects: in volume 1 there are small holes at the base of the spine, small split in the second joint (insignificant). There is minor damage to the headcap with a tear, small insignificant split in the second joint.
Rare copy with little foxing. Some passages marked in the margin. The maps have tears along the folds. There is a light dampstain in the inner margin of the first leaves. The paper of some plates is a bit browned. The interior remains clean and fresh.
