Tableau ou Description de la Russie.


ANONYMOUS. Tableau ou Description de la Russie. Avec les Moeurs, Usages, Coutumes, Religion de ses Divers Peuples. Orne de Jolies Figures. [4], 139, [1] pp. With 7 plates. 12mo., bound in half reddish calf over red marbled paper covered boards. Paris: Chez H. Nicole, Rue de Seine, 1813.

A charming little book on various aspects of Russia, which is very rare, and would appear to be unrecorded, since we can find no record of it in any data base, or any of the standard bibliographies. Although the format is the same as the work by Breton de la Martiniere published in the same year, the illustrations are far less sophisticated and, of course, the book is a fraction of the length. Hinges, head and tale worn, but sound, internally fine.
