Extra-illustrated with sixty-six plates (twenty-two of which are hand-colored), some inlaid to size.In a fine Cosway-style binding (ca. 1920) by Bayntun of Bath (stamp-signed in gilt on the front turn-in) of full dark blue crushed levant morocco over bevelled boards. Covers decoratively panelled in gilt in an Art Nouveau design within an outer gilt single fillet border, spines in six compartments with five raised bands, lettered in gilt in two compartments, decoratively panelled in gilt in the remaining four compartments, with "Extra Illustrated 1873" in gilt at the foot, board edges with gilt-dotted rule, turn-ins ruled in gilt with gilt floral corner ornaments, dark red morocco doublures within an onlaid dark maroon morocco frame within single gilt fillets, dark red morocco liners, all edges gilt. The front doublure of each volume is set with a very fine oval portrait miniature on ivory under glass (each measuring 3 3/16 x 2 1/2 inches; 80 x 63 mm.), in Volume I of Madame de Sévigné (signed Penin) and in Volume II of her daughter, Madame Grignan (signed Lié). The miniatures are set within a frame of onlaid dark maroon morocco within an inner single gilt fillet and an outer double gilt fillet. A superb example.Marie de Rabutin-Chantal, marquise de Sévigné (1626-1696), "French writer noted for some 1,700 letters written to her daughter. The natural, spontaneous tone of the letters broke established rules for the genre and served as a new model. Of old Burgundian nobility, she was introduced into court society in Paris after her marriage in 1644 to Henri de Sévigné, a Breton gentleman of nobility who squandered most of her money before being killed in a duel in 1651. Mme de Sévigné was left with two children, Françoise Marguerite (b. 1646) and Charles (b. 1648). For some years she continued to frequent the fashionable social circles of Paris while also devoting herself to her children. In 1669 her daughter married Count de Grignan and then moved to Provence with him. The separation from her daughter provoked acute loneliness in Sévigné; it also prompted her to write the letters on which her reputation is based. Most of the letters, written without literary intention or ambition, were composed in the first seven years of their separation in 1671. The letters recount current news and events in fashionable society, describe prominent persons, comment on contemporary topics, and provide details of her life from day to day-her household, her acquaintances, her visits, and her taste in reading. Sévigné's conversational manner makes her stories of current events and gossip unforgettable" (Merriam-Webster's Encyclopedia of Literature)."The correspondence of Madame de Sévigné, covering almost fifty years of a rich and turbulent period in French history and culture (1648-1696), has been the favorite reading of great writers from Voltaire to Virginia Woolf. From the time of their first publication in 1726, Sévigné's letters have provided a standard against which other important letter collections can be measured?As a writer, Sévigné occupies a special position in the history of French literature. She wrote nothing but letters, thousands of them, letters that constitute a treasure of information for historians and that have been admired as masterpieces of style. Sévigné's body of work, though, has not been stable-it. Bookseller Inventory #
