A Paris : Chez Israel Henriet

Description

Published in Paris, in French, Silvestre's book is the only guidebook in the case clearly intended for a foreign audience. Drawing upon knowledge gained from several trips to Italy, he published engravings of the highlights and thus embarked on a most successful career as an illustrator of travel, issuing later collections on Paris, French sea ports, and chateaus. This particular volume is his second set of Italian engravings.
