[Untitled folio of eleven lithographic sketches of French architecture, each signed K.H. Digby.]
Oblong folio, 11 lithographs stitched in blue wrappers. Wear to wrappers and edges.
A record of a tour around France, with sketches of Amiens, Rouen, Montpelier & Nimes, particularly noting the Roman antiquities, hear illustrated with early lithographs. The windows of opportunity for an English artist were few during this period, probably either during the Peace of Amiens, 1802, or immediately after the fall of Napoleon in 1814. A scarce work, not in Abbey: the only reference we can find is 'Lumley's Bibliographical Advertiser' of 1845, recording for sale at Lumley's Bookshop 'XI Rough Lithographic Sketches, by K.H. Digby, of French Architectural Antiquities, 5s'.
