First edition

Paul LACROIX XVIIIme. Lettres, sciences et arts


XVIIIme. Lettres, sciences et arts

Firmin Didot, Paris 1878, relié.

First Edition. Illustrated book of 16 color lithographs and 250 woodcuts. Title page in red and black. Beautiful luxurious realization of Didot, neat in all its aspects (typography, illustration, paper ...). Publisher's binding signed Charles Magnier. Half red shagreen decorated with a special plate Souze. boards of red calico also struck a large plate of ornaments by Zouze. Gilt edges. It is the richest binding is by the publisher for these books. Bel exemplaire.L'intérêt of the book is reflected both by his erudition and approachability and reading (historical anecdotes ...). We owe it to Paul Jacob, who was a great bibliophile, a writer and scholar, and curator of the library of the Arsenal. If the entire series has become a classic in the field is that it marries happily work of publisher, printer, bookbinder, history, illustrators, documentation, and few books have finally got this amalgam is owed to Firmin-Didot, at a time when the book became very poor. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.
