Description

This is the least commonly found of Tyndales series, and unquestionably one of the loveliest. His "Artist in... " books are the finest examples of the decorative travel gift books of the period. Tall and handsome with extensive text and reminiscences, they are none the less best loved for the absolutely marvelous colour plates.

This title not only portrays the natural and man-made beauties of the Riviera, but also captures the spirit, the "feel", of these timeless seaside communities. Tyndales work is divided into two main sections; La Riviera di Levante and La Riviera di Ponente.

First edition, the preferred UK issue. Illustrated with 30 beautiful tipped in colour plates with captioned tissue guards. 4to, publishers original deep blue cloth, with elaborate designs and border decorations in gilt on the spine and upper cover, decorated endpapers. 272 pp.
