A COMPLETE SET, IN EXCELLENT CONDITION, WITH 340 BEAUTIFULLY COLORED LARGE FOLIO LITHOGRAPHS (50 of which are entirely unrecorded), OF VICTOR PETIT'S FIVE NINETEENTH-CENTURY WORKS ON ELEGANT COUNTRY LIVING, ONE OF THE GREAT MASTERWORKS OF BOTH CIVIL ARCHITECTURE AND COLOR LITHOGRAPHY. ***** 1.

Maisons de campagne: half-title and title plus one hundred gorgeous plates, all printed in color and extensively retouched by hand. This work normally includes only 50 plates by Victor Petit, but the set I offer includes 50 more, numbered from 51 to 100, by Cheneveau after Leblan, obviously intended as a continuation. THESE FIFTY PLATES DO NOT APPEAR IN ANY RECORDED COPY OF THE WORK, AND ARE OBVIOUSLY EXTREMELY RARE. ***** 3.

THE FIRST FOUR VOLUMES ARE BEAUTIFULLY BOUND IN QUARTER VELLUM AND MARBLED BOARDS. The final volume is in the original cloth-backed board portfolio. A few little, faint stains here and there, but generally in EXCELLENT CONDITION, with the colors in the lithographs extremely fresh and luminous. The bindings are BRIGHT AND FINE. COMPLETE SETS ARE OF THE GREATEST RARITY. I HAVE NOT FOUND ANY RECORD OF THESE FIVE VOLUMES EVER HAVING BEEN OFFERED FOR SALE TOGETHER. Seller Inventory # 38490
