[Volume 2] Itineraire pittoresque du fleuve Hudson et des parties laterales de l'Amerique du Nord, d'apres les dessins originaux pris sur les lieux


Date: 1828



Jacques-Gerard Milbert was a French artist who came to the United States in 1815 and traveled extensively throughout the northeast before returning to France. During his stay Milbert sent many shipments of local flora and fauna to the Museum of Natural History in Paris. He also brought back the sketches from which these superb lithographs were made. Most of the views are of New York State, but included as well are New Jersey, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Virginia. An attractive and important illustrated work.

An exceptional collection of plates from one of the most outstanding series of views of the American landscape ever produced, not normally seen hand-colored.

Three volume set: v. 1-2. Text. v. 3. Atlas.

Atlas consists of one folding map and 54 lithographed views of the Hudson River and surroundings. Lithographs by Adam, Bichebois, Deroy, and others.
