Lucrezia Floriani - SAND, George - 1847. 
Two vols. 8vo, cont. green sheep-backed green boards maroquinÃ©, single gilt fillet round sides, flat spines gilt. Paris: Desessart, 1847. First edition. In this novel Sand used Chopin as a model for a sickly Eastern European prince named Karol. He is cared for by a middle-aged actress past her prime, Lucrezia, who suffers a great deal through her affection for Karol. The book's publication and widespread readership may have exacerbated their antipathy to each other. Fine set, signed by Prince Dietrichstein on each free front endpaper.
