Amour et Gloire. by [MINIATURE ALMANACH.]


Amour et Gloire. Paris, Marcilly, 1827.

128mo, (27 x 19 mm), pp. 63, [1], engraved frontispiece on the verso of the title-page, seven further engraved plates included in the pagination, in contemporary red morocco, single filet gilt with inner roll-tool border and central design of a single flower stem with two flowers in the centre of each cover, gilt stars on the spine, gilt edges.

A delightful microscopic almanac published by Marcilly, one of the leading publishers of miniature almanacs in Paris from the 1790s well into the nineteenth century. It is in the typical format, comprising pp. 64, including the calendar, and containing a number of sentimental songs with fine engraved plates to accompany the songs. The name of the tune to which the song is to be sung is also given. Songs include ‘L’Ingenu’, ‘L’Absence’ and ‘L’Orage’. The eight engraved plates are absolutely charming.
Gumuchian notes that Georges Salomon had an issue with the name of E. Jourdan in place of Marcilly.
