What Our Customers Say...
Early Edition, Illustrated, Leather Binding
Early edition of Genie du Christianisme et Defense du Genie du Christianisme Volume I by Francois-Rene de Chateaubriand in quarter calf binding.
A new edition.
Illustrated with a monochrome plate as the frontispiece. Collated, complete.
This work had an immense influence on nineteenth century European culture, religious life, art, and literature. It was written in defence of Catholicism which was under attack during the French Revolution.
Many argue Genie de Christianisme to have been a major inspiration for the Romantic movement.
In quarter calf binding and marbled boards. Externally, very smart. There is some minor rubbing to the head and tail of the spine. There is some minor bumping to the extremities. Internally, firmly bound. The pages are bright and clean with the odd spot.
