Monument a la gloire de Marie. Litanies de la Très-Sainte Vierge. Nouvelle édition.
8vo. 248 pp. With 58 steel-engraved plates. Splendidly decorated beige satin binding (ca 1855), covers with brocade initials and coloured floral ornaments. Moirée silk endpapers; edges goffered and gilt.
Extremely attractive, well-preserved satin binding showing the monogram of the Virgin Mary on the upper cover and the Empress's crowned, elaborately ornamented initial "E" on the lower cover. A lace-bordered leaf (H. Bertou) with a meticulous handwritten dedication in red and brown ink is inserted before the half-title: "Ad Elisabetta Amalia Graziosissima Imperatrice d'Austria [...] Per L'Augusto Consorte pei Figli diletti".
Occasional foxing to interior; the splendid binding is perfectly preserved.
