Lastly a first edition of the biographical account Pierre Loti, the Romance of a Great Writer by Edmund B. D'Auvergne. Each volume features a coloured frontispiece. At his best Pierre Loti was unquestionably the finest descriptive writer of the day. In the delicate exactitude with which he reproduced the impression given to his own alert nerves by unfamiliar forms, colours, sounds and perfumes, he was without a rival. But he was not satisfied with this exterior charm; he desired to blend with it a moral sensibility of the extremest refinement, at once sensual and ethereal. Many of his best books are long sobs of remorseful memory, so personal, so intimate, that an English reader is amazed to find such depth of feeling compatible with the power of minutely and publicly recording what is felt. Pierre Loti remains, in the mechanism of style and cadence, one of the most original and most perfect French writers of the second half of the 19th century. Thirteen volumes of the original fourteen, with only Japan. (Madame Chrysantheme) absent. With Ramsden bookplates to the front pastedown of each volume. Condition: In original cloth bindings with original unclipped dustwrappers. Externally, dustwrappers are sound, with light chipping to extremities, and fading to the spines. One volume has a repair to the spine. Cloth is smart, with very light rubbing to extremities. Internally, firmly bound, bright and clean throughout, aside from some very light off-setting to the endpapers. Overall: NEAR FINE with VERY GOOD INDEEDdustwrappers. Bookseller Inventory # 027171
