First edition

Léon de JOANNIS Campagne du Luxor


Campagne du Luxor

Madame Huzard, Paris 1835, 31x43cm, relié.

First edition and the first printing of the plates. Plate volume only.
Bradel binding of marbled paper boards by T. Boichot, preserved covers repaired and laid down.
This copy retains its 18 plates mounted on guards, but lacks the title page, showing details of the work undertaken to remove the western obelisk at Luxor, as well as various sites and costumes in Egypt linked to the places visited by the expedition.
Tiny wormtracks occasionally affecting some engravings, dampstain to upper margin, traces of sewing to inner margin.
Very rare.
