Itinéraire de Paris a Jérusalem et de Jérusalem a Paris, en allant par la Grece, et revenant par l'Egypte, la Barbarie et l'Espagne
Le Normant, Paris 1812 - 3 volumes. 8vo: CIX, 276pp; (4), 408pp; (4), 375pp. With large folded engraved map, original publisher's blue paste paper wrappers with printed label to spines. The author of René, and Atala, and a major figure in the Romantic movement, Chateaubriand provides here a narrative that is both historiography and guide through antiquity for the Grand Tour. The author excels at relating the richness of classical antiquity with the less than opulent contemporary state of Greece, Turkey, and the Holy Lands. Replete with quotations and insightful references, the Itinéraire also provides a model of the intellectual profile of the educated European traveler at the beginning of the nineteenth century. The first edition was exhausted so quickly that a second edition was called for the same year, which included the author’s corrections of dates and other details. Chateaubriand’s journey lasted from July 1806 to June 1807. His itinerary as recorded here is divided into seven parts: Voyage de la Grèce (I); Voyage de l'Archipel, de l'Anatolie et de Constantinople (II); Voyage de Rhodes, de Jaffa, de Béethléem et de la Mer Morte (III); Voyage de Jérusalem (IV et V); Voyage d'Egypte (VI); Voyage de Tunis et retour en France (VII). [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
