Description

An impressive example of an A. & C. Blacks illustrated travel book. Employing the local color palette of grays, browns, and blacks, with notes of red and blue in costumes and skies, Forestier achieves great atmospheric renderings of this historic area. The quality of austerity is highlighted by glimpses of colorful stained glass windows and verdant meadows. Sir Amedee Forestier was an Anglo-French artist and illustrator who specialized in historical scenes, and landscapes. His paintings are notable for their attention to detail.

First Edition. With 20 distinguished colour plates by Amedee Forestier. 8vo, publisher's original red cloth, lettered in gilt and decorated in black and orange on the upper cover and spine.
