The inscription was written by "Fte. de Pelleport" who, in actuality, is the author of these two volumes, Piotre Artamof. The Fite de Pelleport and Du Pont families had a long alliance. The inscription, written in French on the ffep of Vol. 1, and dated 1906, reads (in translation), "To Colonel H.A. du Pont de Nemours. In hommage to you from the author in remembrance of the alliance between our two families." Chambr'ier (?), 3 Sept. 1906. VG-, some significant foxing spots to random pages [Attributes: Hard Cover]
