Geïllustreerd, Kunst, Topografie - Aantal: 1

Luxury edition identical to the 1843 first edition, only the title has been modified.

A great classic by Léon Galibert, the first illustrated synthesis of the
conquest and progressive establishment of France in Algeria.

Esteemed for its beautiful illustrations made up of 36 tipped-in engraved plates under
tissue 12 of which are in colour (uniforms of the units in the chapter on the regiments then serving in Algeria), many vignettes in the text. Complete with the
fold-out colour maps at the end.

Rare copy, practically free of foxing. Light dampstain in the lower margin of all of the pages without reaching the text, tear with no fragments missing on the sheets of pp 635-6, otherwise the rest is in very good condition.

Very good copy bound in an elegant romantic binding with a camel ridden by a young soldier, in green half shagreen, smooth spine adorned with a rich decoration of gilded and blind-stamped designs. Boards bound in moiré paper, eggplant moiré paper endpapers.

Fresh and clean decorative copy, the binding has light damage from use: rubbing and marks mainly on the boards, the corners are blunted.
