First edition

Paul LACROIX Directoire, Consulat et Empire


Directoire, Consulat et Empire

Librairie de Firmin Didot, Paris 1884, In 4 (21x29,3), relié.

First edition, illustrated with 10 color lithographs and etchings on 410 bois.Page title in red and black. Beautiful luxurious achieving Didot, cured in all its aspects (typography, illustration, paper ...).
Half red shagreen corners editor back richly adorned by Souze and connected by Engel. Nets on the boards. Rubbed corners, 2 small lacks of paper on the flat (borders). Pale halo of a wetting at the right margin of the entire volume, some spots. Beautiful copy, in the decorative aspect.
The interest of the book is reflected both by his erudition and his approachability and reading (historical anecdotes ...). We owe to Paul Jacob, who was a great bibliophile, writer and scholar and curator of the library of the Arsenal. If any series has become a classic in the field is that it happily marries an editor job, printer, bookbinder, history, illustrators, documentation, and few books have finally succeeded this amalgam that is due to Firmin-Didot, at a time when the book had become very poor.
