Antoine Claude Pasquin VALERY Voyages historiques, littéraires et artistiques en Italie. Guide raisonné complet du voyageur et de l'artiste

Antoine Claude Pasquin VALERY

Voyages historiques, littéraires et artistiques en Italie. Guide raisonné complet du voyageur et de l'artiste

Baudry & Aimé André, Paris 1831 - 1833, In-8 (13x21,5cm), 487pp. et 307pp. ; 443pp. et 359pp. ; 315pp., 5 tomes en 3 volumes reliés.


First edition composed of the first 3 volumes of 1831 and volumes 4 and 5 published in 1833.
Binding ca 1850 in brown glazed half calf. Back with nerves adorned with series of fat and lean fillets and wheels in tail and head. Title and volume coins in black morocco.
Valery was unanimously hailed for the accuracy of his travels, particularly distinguished for his literary research, the examination and description of libraries, such as that of Ravenna, the Laurentian Library, and so on. This new trip to Italy is not only another trip, it is led by a clear literary and artistic vision (Valery was indeed a curator of the Crown libraries, and will be librarian of the Palace of Versailles). We will also appreciate the great precision in the description of the monuments.
