        Pheasants, M & F [Plate LVII]

      [Edinburgh, 1834. Hand coloured engraving, finished with gum arabic. Printed on wove Whatman paper. A beautiful print of pheasants from John Selby's seminal bird book "Illustrations of British Ornithology." Prideaux John Selby was a versatile gentleman naturalist. Born on 23 July 1788 in Alnwick, Northumberland, he inherited Twizell House and its estate in 1804, and throughout his life did not neglect his duties as a landowner, magistrate, High Sheriff, and then Deputy Lieutenant of Northumberland. He married Lewis Tabitha Mitford, the daughter of Bertram Mitford of Mitford Castle, Northumberland, in 1810, and by 1817 had a happy marriage, three daughters, and a house that had become a sort of upmarket staging-post for naturalists heading North and South along the nearby Great North Road. Visitors were to include John James Audubon (who gave Selby and his brother-in-law Robert Mitford lessons in drawing), Sir William Jardine (one of Selby's closest friends and a collaborator on various later works), John Gould, William Yarrell, H.E.Strickland, to name but a few. Natural history and ornithology had been Selby's passions from youth, and Christine Jackson notes, in her excellent introduction to the Sotheby's catalogue of the sale of the Bradley Martin collection of Selby watercolours, that, besides "collecting and preserving birds, Selby had observed them in the field, making careful notes of their habitat and habits. At his leisure, he also sensitively colored drawings of them. With this accumulation of practical knowledge, specimens, and some drawings, Selby embarked in 1819 on an ambitious project to publish the most up-to-date, life-size illustrations of British birds. Since he had an incomplete pictorial record of his birds, many remained to be drawn while publication of the parts of the work proceeded. The aim was to issue each part comprising twelve plates at regular intervals of six months. The size of the paper chosen was elephant folio (27" x 21½") in order that most of the birds might be represented life-size. For each plate, Selby made watercolor paintings of the species." "Selby etched his drawings on copper plates and then either took or sent the plates to William Home Lizars in Edinburgh. Either Lizars or one of his workmen took a pull [proof impression] from Selby's plate and worked on any parts necessary to bring the plate to a very fine state of completion. Selby and Sir William Jardine both purchased their copper plates and etching ground from Pontifex of London, and their letters refer to the progress made in drawing and 'biting' or etching their plates. If they made a mistake or accidently over-etched a plate, they relied on Lizars to correct by burnishing to lighten it" (Jackson, Bird Etchings , pp.202-204). BM (NH) IV,pp.1896-1896; cf. Fine Bird Books (1990) p.141; cf. Nissen IVB 853; cf. Zimmer p.571.

        Epsom Races. (PAIR) Now they're off To the Noblemen and Gentlemen of the Turf, and the Subscribers this print representing the Start for the Derby Stakes... [and] Here they come. To the Noblemen and Gentlemen of the Turf, and the Subscribers this print representing the Horses passing Tattenham Corner for the Derby Stakes..

      London: S. & J. Fuller, 1834. Aquatints, printed in colours and finished by hand, by R.W. Smart and C. Hunt. A fine pair of images capturing the excitement of the start and final turn during the running of one of the five Classic English horse races This sequence of plates depicting two moments in the Derby Stakes could hardly be more exciting. In Now They're Off , anticipation is over, the fierce, thundering movement has begun. In Here They Come , the final stretch is ahead. The horses appear to be moving more quickly than at the beginning. The cheering crowd is jammed against the inner railing, and spectators are riding madly to witness the finish.In fact, a number have fallen off their horses and are sailing through the air. It all takes place on a beautiful afternoon, sky is blue, there are hills in the distance. But all attention is riveted to horses and riders as they go all out for victory. James Pollard was the youngest son of the London engraver and print-seller Robert Pollard. He began work at the age of fifteen as a painter but quickly turned to engraving as well. In the 1820s his coaching scenes became both fashionable and lucrative. "A stream of coaching paintings followed, many of which he engraved himself. From 1821 he exhibited a small number of pictures at the Royal Academy and the British Institution which brought him more patrons. Between 1830 and 1840, Pollard also painted a number of racing pictures and some of the earliest scenes of steeple-chasing on purpose-made courses, many recording the prowess of the few professional and more amateur riders of the day... [In all his work Pollard took great pains over accuracy, this is particularly true of his large scale works and] it is Pollard's large racing scenes which really take off and into which one can gaze and discover a microcosm of the turf" (Charles Lane British Racing Prints p.146) Lane British Racing Prints p.150 (2 prints in the series); cf. Selway James Pollard 1792-1867 p.46 (variant title).

        Character, object, and effects of Trades' Unions; with some remarks on the law concerning them.

      London: James Ridgway and Sons, 1834. 8vo., (2) + 140pp., followed by 16pp. of Ridgway advertisements (these duplicated), light dampstain on first few leaves, original plain wrappers with printed label on upper cover, some wear to spine, but an excellent uncut copy. First edition. Kress C.3884. Goldsmiths 28804. Black 4639. Stammhammer I, p.48. Williams II, 318. In the view of Sidney and Beatrice Webb this was an 'able' pamphlet setting forth the constitution and proceedings of the new unions but criticizing 'their pretensions in a manner which has not since been surpassed. ... (It) remains, perhaps, the best statement of the case against Trade Unionism' [The History of Trade Unionism>, 1894, p.126]. Tufnell's bitter attack on the unions, his accounts of proceedings at secret union meetings and his demand for new and draconian legislation, is all encapsulated in his final paragraph: 'Part of London is now (March 7th) in darkness from a strike amongst the workmen at the gas establishments. Scarcely a town in England has escaped the infliction of a turn-out, and were (the writer) to state that the working classes, have taxed themselves to the amount of one million during the past year, in these futile attempts to raise wages, the calculation would probably be below the truth'. The author was one of the factory commissioners.

        The Cabinet of Natural History and American Rural Sports with illustrations

      Philadelphia: J. and T. Doughty, 1834. 2 volumes, quarto. (11 x 9 1/4 inches). Text in two columns. 2 uncoloured steel-engraved titles with vignettes, 2 uncoloured steel-engraved portrait frontispieces, 49 plates (1 uncoloured wood-engraving, 1 uncoloured steel-engraving, 1 hand-coloured steel-engraving after Thomas Doughty and 46 hand-coloured lithographs by Thomas Doughty [23], M.E.D. Brown [11], J.G. Clonney [8] and others). Extra-illustrated with the front and rear wrappers from Vol. 1, number V and Vol. 2, number II, an original front wrapper from vol. 3, number III and the complete suite of 8 plates from vol. 3 (7 hand-coloured lithographs, 1 uncoloured engraving). Expertly bound to style in red morocco over contemporary red cloth boards, spines in five compartments with wide flat bands, tooled in gilt on each band, lettered in gilt in the second and fourth compartments. The first American sporting book with coloured plates, illustrated and published by the founder of the Hudson River school. This an extraordinary copy, extra-illustrated with original wrappers and a complete suite of plates from the very rare third volume. The Cabinet of Natural History , "an amalgam of natural history, sporting accounts, travel narratives, and practical advice for the countryman" (Reese), was started by the brothers Thomas and John Doughty in Philadelphia. It was issued in monthly parts and ran from the end of 1830 until the spring of 1834 when it abruptly ceased publication. The first volume (made up of 12 parts ) was certainly the work of both Doughty brothers, with virtually all the plates being the work of Thomas, but, by the time the third part of the second volume had been issued the partnership had been disbanded. Thomas had moved to Boston to pursue his career as a painter, and as of 17 May 1832, John Doughty was the sole proprietor. Evidently Thomas's input was sorely missed and by mid-summer John was advising his subscribers that unless the level of support improved he would have to discontinue the publication. In the end, the periodical continued for almost another year before John Doughty's prediction was fulfilled and the publication came to a sudden halt with part IV of volume III. However, despite its relatively short life the Cabinet of Natural History left behind an important legacy: Bennett calls it the `first major sport print color plate book produced in America', the text includes first-hand accounts of hunting expeditions of all kinds and are amongst the earliest of their kind (some of which were reprinted by the Derrydale Press in 1928), the plates include the `first colored sporting prints made in America' (Henderson), and most importantly the work includes a significant number of original lithographs by Thomas Doughty, one of the great names in 19th-century American art. "Of all the predecessors to [Thomas] Cole and his followers, the single artist who could most reasonably claim Cole's mantle as the founder of the [Hudson River] school is the appealing figure of Thomas Doughty, who at one juncture was hailed as 'the all-American Claude Lorrain'" (Howat, The Hudson River and its Painters, p.31). As a painter Doughty "holds a place unique among artists of this country as having initiated the American discovery of the American landscape" (Looney). His importance as a printmaker, however, has yet to be fully recognised or adequately defined, for though "there are many prints to which Doughty's name is attached as artist only, there are only a few for which he was initially completely responsible ... These are the 23 lithographs made specifically for Volume I of ... The Cabinet of Natural History " (op. cit.). Doughty initially trained as a leather currier but by 1820 was listing himself in the Philadelphia City Directory as a landscape painter. "He was restless .. .energetic ... gifted ... [and] was popular almost from the start. People obviously liked his vision of a benevolent natural world ... He exhibited frequently in Philadelphia and elsewhere" (op.cit.). His work was engraved for use in various publications from the early 1820s onwards, but his "major contribution to the world of printmaking, however, lies not in the 40-odd illustrations taken from his paintings and drawings but rather in the plates he himself made for [the present work]" (op.cit). American lithography was still in its infancy when the Doughtys began their periodical, and it is not clear where Thomas learned the art. "He proved himself an able practitioner in the plates of Volume I of the Cabinet , which are important as the first sporting prints in color made in America" (op.cit.). This volume also has the distinction of being the first major book of any kind with coloured lithographic plates printed in America. There were two earlier minor works but "their lithographic illustrations, being chiefly diagrams, have not the same artistic quality as those of the Cabinet of 1830 with its studies of birds and animals in natural settings and dramatic landscapes. Moreover, the Cabinet was widely distributed, and the first eight issues at least were a popular success. In this way, introducing the colored lithograph to a wide audience, it made an important contribution to the development of American lithography ... 1830 was thus crucial in the history of American lithography for the lithographic print came of age, and this was largely through the work of Thomas Doughty" (Looney). "It marks the beginning of dominance of lithography in book illustration" (Reese). The third volume, discontinued after but four parts due to lack of subscription in the publication, is quite rare and is seldom found; this copy includes all 8 plates published in the third volume, along with an original parts wrapper from volume three, part 3. In addition, this set is extra-illustrated with two parts wrappers (front and back) from volume one and two parts. The rear wrappers are of particular interest, containing a prospectus for the work and an advertisement for an ornithological work never published. Bennett, p.35; Gee 132; R.W.

First state of this spectacular image of the Hudson and West Point: focusing 'on the beauty of the Hudson River and the mountains that border it on either side ... a celebration of nature, highlighting the ever-changing drama staged by mountains, water, and sky' (Deak) William James Bennett (c. 1787-1844) was born in England and received his training at the Royal Academy. He emigrated to the United States in 1826, and is best known for his views of American cities, including the Hudson Valley Region, Niagara Falls, and numerous port cities such as New York, Charleston, and Buffalo. With the arrival of William Bennett and several other émigré artists such as William Guy Wall, and John Hill, the quality of aquatint engraving in America was elevated to a level equaling, or perhaps even surpassing, that of European printmakers.

        Pinnated Grouse [Greater Prairie-Chicken]

      London: R. Havell, 1834. Hand-coloured engraving with aquatint and etching. Paper watermarked "J. Whatman/1834." Fine gilt frame. One of Audubon's greatest images from the elephant folio first edition of The Birds of America. Set against a background of meadows with hills in the distance, this dramatic image depicts two male Great Prairie Chickens fighting for the attention of a lone female. Audubon captures the moment, perhaps after long preliminaries of booming cries, bluster and circling, one of the males launches a physical attack on the rival cock. The female looks on with shy fascination. This plate is among Audubon's most carefully-balanced compositions, with the bulk of the left hand bird offset by the fragile beauty of the martagon lily on the right. Audubon would write of this bird: "It has been my good fortune to study the habits of this species of Grouse, at a period when, in the district in which I resided, few other birds of any kind were more abundant. I allude to the lower parts of the States of Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, and Missouri ... As soon as the snows have melted away ... the Grouse, which had congregated during the winter in great flocks, separate into parties of from twenty to fifty or more ... Inspired by love, the male birds, before the glimpse of day lightens the horizon, fly swiftly and singly ... to meet, to challenge, and to fight the various rivals led by the same impulse to the arena...Imagine them assembled ... see them all strutting in the presence of each other, mark their consequential gestures, their looks of disdain, and their angry pride, as they pass each other. Their tails are spread out and inclined forwards, to meet the expanded feathers of their neck, which ... lie supported by the globular orange-coloured receptacles of air, from which their singular booming sounds proceed ... the fire of their eyes evinces the pugnacious workings of their mind, their notes fill the air around, and at the very first answer from some coy female, the heated blood of the feathered warriors swell every vein, and presently the battle rages ...The weaker begin to give way, and one after another seek refuge in the neighbouring bushes ...The vanquished and the victors then search for the females, who, believing each to have returned from the field in triumph, receive them with joy" (J. J. Audubon, The Birds of America , New York & Philadelphia: 1840-1844, vol. V, pp.95-96). Susanne M. Low, A Guide to Audubon's Birds of America , New Haven & New York: 2002, p.117.

      1834. "No Guilty Deed Like this Before, E'er Saw the Light of Day" [Broadside]. [Execution]. [London, England]. The Trial and Execution of Henry Hughes, Who Suffered Death this Morning, At the County Goal, Horsemonger Lane, Southwark, For Violating Emma Cock, A Girl Only 8 Years Old. [London]: G. Smeeton, Printer, 74, Tooley Street., [1834]. 15" x 10" broadside mounted to 19" x 13" board with hinged matte. Text in three columns enclosed by black rules, large woodcut vignette of irons, hanging and prison above of text, untrimmed edges. Text concludes with seven-verse poem. Some toning, otherwise fine. * Emma Cock was gathering flowers in a field in the London borough of Southwark with her little sister when she was raped by the 23-year-old Henry Hughes. The case was tried at Kingston Assizes where the court was "crowded almost to suffocation." Emma testified at the trial. Standing on a chair in the witness box, "the clearness and precision with which she gave her testimony astonished all present." Although the broadside has a detailed account of the trial, details about the crime are mostly omitted because they were "wholly unfit for publication." At the foot of the broadside is a seven-verse poem, which begins: "No guilty deed like this before, E'er saw the light of day; Unequall'd in the list of crime, for savage cruelty."

Der mechanische Elefant wird auf einem Felsen stehend präsentiert; er "macht alle Bewegungen, als wenn er lebe". Dargestellt wird der Einzug der mongolischen Kaisers in ein erobertes Land.

Printed in Arabic within double ruled borders. Contemp. blindstamped calf with fore-edge flap and cover ornaments. Dutch paste-paper endpapers. The Arabic translation of Conrad Malte-Brun's "Géographie Universelle et Cosmographie" was one of Egyptian scholar Tahtawi's first efforts, completed in Cairo in 1249 AH, just before he opened a school of languages in 1835. The present volume comprises an extract of the same, published the following year. Tahtawi (Sheik Rhufai, 1801-73), who had studied in Paris, is considered one of the early adapters to Islamic modernism, a movement that sought to integrate Islamic principles with European social theories, and his school was influential in the development of science, law, literature and Egyptology in 19th-century Egypt (cf. GAL II, p. 481). - Binding insignificantly scuffed and rubbed at extremeties. French manuscript title label pasted to lower inside cover. A few scattered spots, otherwise a very clean copy.

        The Naval Officer's Guide for Preparing Ships at Sea

      London: Richard Bentley, 1834. 12mo. xii, 328 pp. This text is entirely taken up with instructions for rigging a ship, and working the rigging to perform various evolutions at sea. The hundreds of details are gone through methodically, from anchors to yards, in all their varieties, and all the tasks that can be performed upon them. Scarce in the trade, especially in this first edition. Harland, in the bibliography to his “Seamanship in the Age of Sail” only cites the 1848 edition of MartelliÂ’s book. Bound in nicely gilt full black morocco, with gold anchors, rules and a figure of a goddess of navigation. A lovely copy.

Narrateurs des faits militaires, nous nous contenterons de les raconter, et nous laisserons de côté les causes morales et politiques qui ont pu les produire. Nous n’employons jamais d’autres ornements que la vérité et la plus scrupuleuse impartialité. Les actions d’éclat, les faits remarquables, curieux, les traits de bravoure, de générosité, les mots heureux des chefs et des soldats, l’historique de chaque régiment, les circonstances qui ont fait accorder des décorations, les combats de terre et de mer, les passages des fleuves, les sièges, les anecdotes publiques ou privées, tout ce qui est honorable pour les Français, dans quelque parti qu’ils aient combattu, entre dans le cadre tracé par cet ouvrage. Tout ce qui est relatif à la guerre sera également rapporté, de manière à intéresser tous les anciens militaires qui s’y reconnaîtront. La marche chronologique adoptée permet de rattacher à la description d’une campagne, d’un siège ou d’une bataille, tous les faits militaires, et particulièrement ceux qui ont fait obtenir des décorations. Tous les guerriers français, quel que soit le drapeau qui les a conduit à la gloire, sont désignés très exactement. C’est ainsi que ce vaste ouvrage deviendra un monument national érigé à la valeur française de 1792 à 1815. On a consulté tout ce qui a été écrit, sur ce sujet, en France et chez l’étranger, sollicité et reçu quantité de témoignages de ceux qui ont figuré dans ces évènements militaires de 1792 à 1815. En suivant la chronologie la plus précise nous faisons connaître l’ensemble de toutes les campagnes et expéditions militaires, offrant ainsi, sans entrer dans aucune discussion politique, le tableau des guerres qui avaient lieu à la même époque et dans différents lieux tout au long de cette période des guerres de la Révolution et de l‘Empire ». Texte intégral de cet ouvrage rarissime, devenu une référence absolue pour les anciens de la Grande Armée survivants de l'épopée militaire révolutionnaire et impériale sous la Restauration et la Monarchie de Juillet, repris de l’édition originale de 1817-1822 alors publiée en 26 volumes, augmenté, pour cette réédition de 1834 plus pratique en 13 forts volumes, des addenda et rectifications postérieurs.

        Oeuvres complètes de Victor Hugo 1819-1834: Littérature et philosophie mêlées, I

      Paris: Eugène Renduel 1834 - Original yellow wrappers, preserved in elegant green morocco box, lettered in gilt. Spine slightly darkened, and showing some wear, covers slightly creased, some foxing throughout; the box slightly rubbed at the spine and somewhat faded. Vol. i only (of two), inscribed by the author on the (rather embrowned) half-title to Louise Swanton Belloc, "A Madame Belloc Hommage de l'auteur", and with (the author's?) manuscript corrections on pp. xviii and xx; 12pp. of publisher's advertisements at front. Loosely inserted a picture postcard ("Monsieur va au soleil. (Dessin de Victor Hugo)", Maison de Victor Hugo, Paris), inscribed on the verso in Hilaire Belloc's hand, "Victor Hugo drew this caricature of himself, one wet season. I bought it at his house in the Place Royale now Place des Voges." Louise Swanton Belloc (née Anne-Louise Chassériau Swanton, 1796-1881), daughter of Col James Swanton, from Co Cork, and Louise Chassériau, from La Rochelle, married in 1821 the painter Jean-Hilaire Belloc (1786-1866), founder in 1830 of the Ecole Nationale de Dessin; one of his pupils was Auguste Rodin. "She was the noblest human being I have ever known," wrote her daughter-in-law, Bessie Parkes Belloc. "She had met almost all the outstanding people in the intellectual and literary worlds in France and in England. She had known well, in her own country, Lamartine, Michelet, and, in 1824, Stendhal had written the preface to a life she wrote of Lord Byron. She also knew Thiers, Guziot, and Victor Hugo. She was the first writer to translate Dickens into French, and her translation of Uncle Tom's Cabin was still in print in 1914. Among her English friends were people as different as Maria Edgeworth, Tom Moore, and, in later years, Lady Byron . . . She spoke the two languages to perfection, but her English, though fluent and correct, might be termed majestic. When she took up a newspaper or a book to read out loud to me, I never knew in which language she was speaking, her meaning seemed to come direct in all its fullness without the intervention of words." Louise Swanton Belloc's two-volume Lord Byron, published in Paris in 1824, the year of her subject's death, was one of his first biographies - doubling as a bilingual anthology of his work. Her interest in the poet was shared by Victor Hugo, a friend of both Bellocs from early in their marriage, and author of an obituary hommage to Byron published in La Muse française for June 1824. Hugo was "the most important writer of the nineteenth century in France", in the words of his biographer Graham Robb. It is surprising, therefore, that Hilaire Belloc junior, Louise's grandson (son of Louis Belloc, 1830-1872, and Bessie Parkes Belloc, 1829-1925) and a prolific biographer himself, never set his sights on him. Belloc pursued the history of his French family and took pride in its literary ramifications. Maison de Victor Hugo where he went, incorporating the Paris apartment where Hugo lived from 1832 to 1848, is still open as a museum in La Place des Vosges. Louise Swanton Belloc lost her correspondence with Dickens and Stendhal when the Prussians occupied her house during the Franco-Prussian War, but her surviving papers are held at Girton College, Cambridge. "L'union de la France et de l'Angleterre peut produire des résultats immenses pour l'avenir de l'humanité," writes Hugo. "La France et l'Angleterre sont les deux pieds de la civilisation."

        History of the British Colonies.

      London: Cochrane and M'Crone [or] James Cochrane and Co.,, 1834-35. 5 volumes, octavo (216 x 130 mm). Mid-19th century half calf by Seton & Mackenzie of Edinburgh, richly gilt spines, red and green morocco twin labels, marbled sides & edges. 26 handcoloured engraved maps (some folding), folding statistical table. Armorial bookplates of "Waugh. The Burroughs": Edward Waugh (1816-1891), Liberal MP for Cockermouth. A touch of foxing in places. First editions. A very attractive set of this pioneering work on the British Empire by the Dublin-born writer and civil servant Robert Montgomery Martin (c.1802-1868). The volumes deal with, respectively, Asia, West Indies, North America, Africa & Australasia, Europe, and contain some very good maps. "Martin's writings, though drawing on official sources, were influenced by his practical Christianity and by his association with leading intellectuals. He was a founder member of the Statistical Society of London (1834), the Colonial Society (1837), and the East India Association (1867). He opposed duelling, suttee, and slavery, advocated the abolition of flogging, and was active in the work of the Aborigines Protection Society... At a time when some questioned the value of the empire, Martin was its spokesman. He favoured a reformed colonial policy and, as a proprietor of the East India Company (1838?-43), debated both at India House and through journal articles. But his lack of financial backing and his tendency to rush to judgement were factors minimizing his effectiveness; the former led him to seek ex post facto official recompense for activities freely entered into, the latter lost him support at key moments. Martin, however, had a ready pen and his importance lies primarily in his chronicling of empire and his exposition of political and social issues, particularly in the context of non-Ricardian economics. The very diversity of his activities and writings—267 printed works and 580 surviving unpublished letters and memoranda—underlines his significance" (ODNB).

        Les Historiettes de Tallemant des Réaux. Mémoires pour servir à l'histoire du XVIIe siècle, Publiés sur les le Manuscrit inédit et autographe ; avec des éclaircissements et des notes, Par Messieurs Monmerqué, Membre de l'Institut, de Chateaugiron et Taschereau.

      Alphonse Levavasseur 1834-1835, Paris - 6 vol. in-8, demi-veau glacé brun, dos lisse orné, pièces de titre et de tomaison en veau noir (reliure de l'époque signée Simier). Edition originale publiée sur le manuscrit inédit et autographe. Bien qu'expurgée cette édition fit scandale. L'oeuvre de Tallemant des Réaux apparaît comme une peinture réaliste des moeurs du XVIIe siècle. Attiré très tôt par la littérature, il fut un poète apprécié dans les salons de la haute finance protestante, dont faisait partie sa famille. Introduit à l'hôtel de Rambouillet, c'est en partie grâce aux confidences de la marquise qu'il rédigera ses Historiettes. Indépendant d'esprit, il y dresse, en quelques pages, le portrait des grands personnages de son époque. Terminée en 1659, cette oeuvre destinée d'abord à être lue par des proches, fut retravaillée pendant une vingtaine d'années, et complétée à partir de nombreuses lectures ; elle ne fut publiée qu'en 1834. L'intérêt de ce précieux et vivant témoignage a longtemps été sous-estimé depuis sa publication au XIXe siècle, mais au fil du temps la découverte de documents d'archives l'a rendu beaucoup plus crédible, de sorte que Tallemant des Réaux apparaît aujourd'hui comme un mémorialiste satirique bien informé, qui aime à rapporter des anecdotes piquantes. Bel exemplaire. Très légères rousseurs. Vicaire VII, 743. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
