[Dauphiné]. GINON (Abbé). Eugène Chaper, according to his correspondence. Lectures given at the Académie delphinale. Grenoble, Imprimerie F. Allier père et fils, 1893. One volume in-8, period green half-chagrin, spine with 5 ornate nerves, gilt head, covers preserved. 151 pp. Frontispiece portrait engraved by Eugène Champollion. Dated 1873. This work is a study of Eugène Chaper (1827-1890), a member of parliament and famous bibliophile from the Dauphiné region, based on his private correspondence. Two periods of his life are particularly illustrated by his correspondence: his military life during the Crimean War (1854-1856) and his activity during the 1870 war and the subsequent deputation. His passion as a collector and bibliophile is mainly mentioned at the end of the book, and only a few letters illustrate this (pp. 144-150). Printed on Hollande paper from BFK de Rives paper mills (watermarked). A fine, well-bound, untrimmed copy with a few minor defects (light foxing on the frontispiece, a paper tear on the upper cover, worn binding edges with paper tears, foxing on the endpapers), but the interior is impeccable.
