BRITAIN. - Album of poems and drawings. S.l., 1852. Manuscript in-4 oblong, green chagrin, framed with gilt filets, spine decorated, inner lace, gilt edges (Binding of the time).
Charming manuscript album on Brittany.
The author may have been a Breton poet, as some poems, addressed to Breton poets and literary figures or showing links with them, suggest: Léocadie Penqueur, nicknamed the Brest muse, her daughter Anne Burle, Pierre de Lachambeaudie "detained on the pontoons in the harbour of Brest", the priest and poet Auguste Devoille, Gustave de Penmarch, etc.
Comprising a hundred or so finely calligraphed poems, decorated with large illuminated initials, this album is illustrated with 12 original drawings, most of them watercolours, representing Breton subjects: Pont-Christ (Finistère), port of Brest (Penfeld), young Breton woman with a basket on her head, Breton village, young Breton woman in the barnyard, roadstead of Brest (Porstrein), port of Brest (Kervallon), etc.
