Pierre Jules Thophile Gautier (30 August 1811 23 October 1872) was a French poet, dramatist, novelist, journalist, art and literary critic. While Gautier was an ardent defender of Romanticism, his work is difficult to classify and remains a point of reference for many subsequent literary traditions such as Parnassianism, Symbolism, Decadence and Modernism. He was widely esteemed by writers as diverse as Balzac, Baudelaire, the Goncourt brothers, Flaubert, Proust and Oscar Wilde. Condition: In cloth bindings. Externally, smart with just minor shelfwear and chipping to several of the spine labels. Slight sunning to the spines. Internally, generally firmly bound although pp. 259-260 and 269-70 of volume XII, and pp. 343-6 of volume XVIIare detached but present. A few minor spots to the endpapers but otherwise very clean throughout. Some offsetting of the plates. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
