Le Petit Pélerin.

Paris: Louis Janet, (c. 1820). 48mo. (ii), 48, (24)pp., + 6 plates. Engraved plates, title-page image, and decorative borders adorn this selection of pastoral and romantic poems. Throughout each verse are images of the lush French countryside, underscoring the expansive spiritual and emotional longing between lovers. After the poems is bound Louis Janet's Petit Souvenir des Dames, a datebook with divisions by day and month. All encased in a glass binding, backed in metal covered by highly ornate gold. The bright giltwork, which displays designs of leaves, vines, bouquets, and dots, illuminates the bone-white painted covers, themselves showing the title wreathed by flowers on the front and another bouquet on the rear, likewise in gold. Faint foxing throughout, scant loss to exterior gold, else near fine. Unrecorded in OCLC. Item #30486
