Voyage a Surinam. Description des possessions néerlandaises dans la Guyane.Bruxelles, Société des Beaux-Arts, De Wasme et Laurent, 1839. Royal folio (48.5 x 34 cm). With wood-engraved vignette on title. Lithographed additional title and 99 lithographed illustrations on 49 plates, all mounted on China paper. Original black half morocco, spine gilt.
Muller, America 1460; Sabin 4737; Suriname-cat. UBA 0508a. First edition. The lively plates include topographic views, botanical, ethnographical and zoological subjects, and scenes from the life of the native Indians, the African-Americans and the white colonists. The plates are preceded by a historical survey of Surinam. According to the text on the title-page, there are one hundred plates ( cent dessins ), but the list with illustrations in the book mentions only 99 illustrations, mainly half-page, on 49 plates. It is probable that the full-page lithographed title is included in the cent dessins . The Table des figures and the Table des matières have been bound in, in that order, after the plates. Binding rubbed, some browning or foxing. Good copy of this important work on Surinam.
