About this Item

Oblong 2o (325 x 440 mm). Engraved title-page, engraved explanation of plates with pasted overslip adding a description of plate 6, and 6 engraved plates (some staining to title-page and margins of plates). Contemporary marbled paper wrappers (worn); cloth folding case. The plans and drawings illustrating the public festivities held in Paris to celebrate the TREATY OF AIX-LA-CHAPELLE on 12 February 1749. The treaty, signed on 18 October 1748, was mainly a diplomatic agreement between Britain and France, but it also marked the end of the War of Austrian Succession. Although the celebration called for fireworks at the Place de l'Hotel de Ville with numerous orchestras playing and buffets set up around the city, the affair was rather gloomy due to French resentment over the terms of the treaty. Berlin 3019; Vinet 524. Bookseller Inventory # D4444
