Author: Theodore-François-Xavier Hunkler; Emile Rouargue
Publisher: Limoges, chez Barbou freres
A scarce mid 19th century edition of Hunkler’s work on Rudolf of Habsburg, Emperor of Germany.
This edition is adorned with colorful decorations, designed to emulate the classical gilt work of a cartonnage binding, with blue against gold.
There are three plates throughout, including the frontispiece.
Worldcat records only nine existing copies of this edition in libraries.
One finely decorated cartonnage volume in 12mo, 289 pages
On note of condition, this volume is in good shape, with minor rubbing and wear to the boards, and peeling to the head of the spine. There is little to no foxing or staining throughout.
