One of a series of Collection d'Albums Historiques. Original pictorial grey cloth, with minor worn edges and corners but a very nice collectable copy. A large, attractive volume with superb full-page chromolithograph illustrations. First Edition of this magnificently illustrated history of King Francois 1st, who ruled from 1515 to 1547.
The text is in the original French language.
The format of this volume with 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. Many of the illustrations overlay the text, and the leaves are all mounted on linen guards. A rare and beautiful book.
82 pages, frontispiece, 40 chromolithograph illustrations including 32 full-page and 4 double-page plates.Author:
