SEYTRE (Jean-Claude-Marie). Voyage au Mont Pilat ou Visite à mon pays. Saint-Etienne, Vve Théolier Aîné, 1861. One volume in-8, contemporary green half-basane, smooth spine, gilt title and fillets. 100pp. Rare first edition. "Seytre de la Charbouze, 1803-1879, from the village of Doizieu in Pilat, was also a great traveler, and it was only after twenty-five or thirty peregrinations in Egypt, Syria, India and Oceania, that he gave himself the pleasure of revisiting the cradle of his childhood and writing down the feelings of exquisite joy that a return to the native land inspires in all well-born hearts. His book, full of personal recollections, is no less pleasant to read for that, as much as his profound knowledge of the subject treated, quickly makes us forget a few naiveties." [in "Voyage humoristique, politique et philosophique au Mont Pilat" by Albin Mazon]. Rubbing, scattered foxing.
