Description

This early version of the coffee-table book provides interesting insights into assumptions about Italian life, with its lively images of landmarks, religious processions, and peasant life. Given the French title and lack of publishing information, it is likely that a traveller collected the pictures individually, and then had them coloured and bound upon return home, much as we do with the modern photo album.
