VILLEMAIN & ANDRIEUX Galerie française ou collection de portraits des hommes et des femmes...


Galerie française ou collection de portraits des hommes et des femmes...

Firmin Didot, Paris 1821, grand in 4 (32x22cm), 3 tomes en 3 Vol. reliés.

French gallery or collection of portraits of men and women who have shown France in the sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth century. First edition. A supplement published a few years later. The index is missing in the last volume. Black sheepskin half threaded, smooth back. Excellent condition, a few scattered spots in margins but on a very white paper. The three volumes contain 65 prints respectively, 60 and 62 engravings. Historical records with respect to each portrait, which include a few pages are the work of Villemain, Andrieux, Denon, Boissy d'Anglas and others ... portraits of Mr Chrétien, Rulhman, weber ... Many college similes add to the interest of the book, which contains portraits that are found nowhere else. This edition is uncommon and justly appreciated by amateurs. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.
