Outside with some slight signs of wear very good. Inside with some slight browning at margins, otherwise very good/excellent.

- Fisher, Sohn & Co., London, Paris [1841-1846], with 64 steel engraved plates. Through the picture we find a Balzacian Paris. The book attempts to bring together everything that is remarkable in France, both architecturally and scenically. The illustration accompanies the historical and descriptive text. The illustrative wealth is remarkable for that time, and we admire the castle of Pau, as well as the Pantheon, Arch of Triumph, Amphitheatre at Nismes, Place de la Concorde, Cathedral of Notre-Dame, Circle of Gavarnie and the Cathedral of Orleans. The interesting thing is that, following the trends of the time, we find in the engravings characters in historical costumes and often the place where he was.

Insured shipment with tracking ability.

    Dear Mr. Jorge, Please read my last reviews ... Why should I just pack your book badly! The only reason for bad packaging is that the German or Spanish Post has opened the package. The books were wrapped in sturdy paper, then they were wrapped with special corrugated / protective cardboard and then packed in a double-sealed box with triple gluing and additional bonding from the outside with parcel tape! More is not possible. I'm sorry and I wish you a nice weekend. With best wishes Mariony
