Charles Malo (1790-1871) produced a series of books on the capital cities of Europe, in French, and recorded details of daily life in the cities, historical information and architectural details of churches and significant public buildings. The frontispiece view is of the Upper Belvedere Palace and Fountain, Vienna, Austria. The Baroque palace complex of Upper and Lower Belvedere, the Orangery, and the Palace Stables, were built as a summer residence for the Prince Eugene of Savoy.
