A handsomely bound example of Brunelleschi's illustrated edition of three works by the French dramatist, poet & novelist Alfred de Musset, known almost as well for his works (which have musically inspired artists ranging from Georges Bizet to Celine Dion) as for his relationship with the novelist 'George Sand'. Musset is also believed to be the anonymous author of Gamiani, ou deux nuits d'excès (1833), a lesbian erotic novel also believed to be modelled on Sand.

Quarto (300 x 225 mm.); 20 splendid tipped-in colour plates by Umberto Brunelleschi, illustrations, decorative title in blue & brown and borders in blue; bound in dark blue morocco, by Stikeman & Co. of New York, covers with gilt-ruled borders and corner-pieces, spine gilt in compartments with five raised bands, grey morocco doublures ruled and tooled in gilt with small purple morocco onlays, cream moiré silk flyleaves, signed at foot of rear turn-in, top edge gilt, others uncut, original decorative upper wrapper bound in at end, very slight wear to head of spine, slip-case (a little rubbed).
