Lot of two works by MAZON, the famous and popular Dr. Francus: 1/ [MAZON (Albin)]. Voyage au pays helvien. By Doctor Francus. Privas, Imprimerie du "Patriote", 1885, in-12, 368 pp; modern half-basin, ribbed spine. Rare first edition. Autograph letter signed by the author in the upper margin of the title page. Le Sourd, Mazon et son oeuvre 25: "Le Voyage au pays helvien is limited to the region between Viviers and Largentière. It contains interesting details on the topography of Villeneuve de Berg and its local customs. The entire volume contains a fairly large number of biographies of Vivarois notables: Jean de Serres, Antoine Court et Court de Gébelin, the Barruels, J.-L. de Laboissière, S.-P. de Tavernol, l'abbé Feuillade, le chanoine Rouchier, Jacques de Bane, Jacques and Marie de Romieu, Honoré Flaugergues, l'abbé Barracand, and above all the vicomte de Saint-Andéol, the archaeologist whose work M. Mazon lists and appreciates, and the president Challamel. The latter, born in 1763, has left only unpublished manuscripts; his erudition has noticeably aged, and this fact in no way detracts from his merit. The author analyzes his works and reproduces his opinion on the origin of the States of Vivarais, an interesting, ingenious and unfounded opinion that M. Mazon was to contradict himself, after studying the subject, in his Essai sur le Vivarais pendant la guerre de Cent Ans (pp. 292-301)." 2/ [MAZON (Albin)]. Voyage archéologique et pittoresque, historique et géologique, fantaisiste et sentimental, économique et social, philosophique et politique, à pied, à bateau, en voiture et à cheval le long de la rivière d'Ardèche par le Docteur Francus. Privas, Imprimerie du "Patriote", 1885, in-12 of (4)-426 pp. + 1 f. errata; paperback. First edition.
