Jules Pizzetta - Plantes et bêtes. Causeries et familières sur l'histoire naturelle - 1880
Biología, Historia natural - Cantidad: 1 - Ilustraciones coloreadas a mano, Láminas insertas - Libro

An exceedingly attractive copy of a quite lovely book. This one is bound (and stamped) by Caupin (?). All edges are gilt and apart from a small amount of wear at the head of spine, the sheepskins and cloth binding is lovely and bright, with the corners showing just a little wear. The inside front cover carries a bold gilt stamp showing that this book, presumably in a special binding, was a prize.

Jules Pizzetta (1820 - 1900) was the pseudonym of a French naturalist and author, J.-P. Houzé, born in London.

Little is known of this 'vugarisateur', but he was abundantly prolific. This is the second edition of this title. The work introduces all manner of subjects and historical figures (Linneaus etc) through a narrative than has lots of conversations, questions and answers, and many digressions. The in-text wood curs (150 of them) are very pleasing, so too are the six hand-coloured plates.

The book carries no date, but looks to be c. 1860-80.

A study book very rarely found in this condition. So collectible!
