Includes one on the cover of the binding and 22 plates in colour including two doubles and some drawings in black on the back of the double plates.

“Grouped in this way, they bear better witness to the artistic effort that inspired them. They are better understood, they acquire their true value, their scope, their decisive meaning.” (see Henri Piazza. Foreword of “Province.” 1902 p VIII ).
“A rare series overflowing with fantasy.” (Carteret. Volume V, p. 107).
