Paris: P. Didot l'aine, 1820. First edition. 232 lithographed plates by Engelmann after Fragonard, Taylor, Bonnington, et al, some in two states, many plates with lithotint, printed on chine appliqué, 25 engraved vignettes to text. 2 vols. Folio. Contemporary half dark blue morocco and marbled boards, spines richly gilt. Light foxing throughout, mostly to margins. "the greatest of all publications illustrated with lithographs" - Ray The first two volumes, of an eventual 19 published over 58 years, of this highly influential series of romantic views of French scenery and architecture. Ray singles out this Ancienne Normandies series (a third volume, not present, was published more than 50 years later) as of particular interest and beauty, the Bonnington lithographs in particular "among the masterpieces of all lithography.".
