One of a series of Collection d'Albums Historiques. Original pictorial green cloth, with worn edges and corners with stain on back cover, but a VERY acceptable copy. A large, attractive volume with superb full-page chromolithograph illustrations.
The text is in the original French language.
This volume has the text leaves tipped onto stubs so that the spectacular plates are fully visible and the huge double-page plates are cinematic in their effect.
Gold blocked page edges. Green cloth covers with lovely BRIGHT gilt and polychrome front cover illustration of Henry VI. First edition of this charming illustrated album on the celebrated 16th century French King.
Many of the illustrations overlay the text, and the leaves are all mounted on linen guards.
72 pages, frontispiece, 36 chromolithograph illustrations including 28 full-page, 4 double-page plates and 4 tipped in plates.Author:
