Probably one of the nicest large folio Paris-albums with views published in the 19th century. The lithographed plates partly after photographs with stimulate figurative lively scenes. From volume I the plate number six ,Le Louvre - nouvelle facade sur la rue de Rivoli' is missing, the plate was probably not bound to it. Published in three volumes, the text was written by various authors, including Louis Enault, Mary Lafon, Pr. Mérimée, Viollet Le Duc and others. Volume I and II do contain a description of Paris, volume III is about the history of Paris and about its surrounding. Bound in beautiful midnight blue half leather with gold embossed roses and title on the spine. Minor spotting, mostly in the margins. Overall a very clean copy. Spines slightly worn, leather corners carefully renewed.
Illustrated with 99 (100) tinted lithographed plates. Contem. half-calf.
