An attractively bound set of Leconte de Lisle's poetry, published as part of Lemerre's Petite Bibliotheque Libraire series. It consists of four works: Poèmes Antiques (first published in 1852); Poèms Barbares (1862 as Poésies barbares); Poèmes Tragiques (1884); and Derniers Poemes (1895). Georges Levitsky was a 20th-century Odessa-born binder in Paris whose clients included King Albert I of Belgium and King Alexander I of Serbia.
4 works, duodecimo (163 x 107 mm). Uniformly bound by Georges Levitzky in green marbled vellum, spines hand-lettered in black and red ink, lyre device in gilt and black to spines, double panels in black and gilt to covers, yapp edges, marbled endpapers, remains of silk bookmarks, top edge gilt.
A little wear to spine ends. An excellent set.
