LA GUADELOUPE PITTORESQUE TEXTE ET DESSINS PAR A. BUDAN.
Paris: J. Claye for Noblet & Baudry, . 1863 - Extra lithographic titlepage on india paper, mounted; plus eleven tinted lithographic plates (including large folding panoramic view) by Emile Vernier after Budan. Folio. Original green cloth, stamped in blind, gilt lettering, neatly rebacked. Text somewhat tanned but plates clean. Small old dampstain in upper blank margin of two final plates. Overall very good. In a folding green cloth box, leather label. An important work, with eleven fine plates of Guadeloupe scenes, and with text that covers all aspects of life in Guadeloupe. Views include picturesque sights in the countryside, scenes in the main towns (Moule and l'Anse Bertrand), and a large panoramic view of the town and harbor of Pointe-à- Pietre. Budan was born in Guadeloupe in 1827, and became an accomplished painter of portraits, historical and religious subjects, flowers, and murals. He exhibited at the Paris Salon from 1863 to 1867 and was responsible for the mural decoration of the chapel of St. Joseph in the cathedral at Pointe-à- Pietre. A rare series of views, and most unusual for being from this period, when the decline in the sugar industry had decreased the number of patrons available for such expensive works. SABIN 8949.
