Auvergne - Forez - ASSIER DE VALENCHES (P. d'). Les Fiefs du Forez, according to the unpublished manuscript of Mr. Sonyer Du Lac, first lawyer of the King... in 1788, with notes, map and a reasoned table of the names of places and persons attached to the said collection. Lyon, Louis Perrin, 1858. Small in folio of [6]-16-353 pages, light brown ostrich leather, spine ribbed, gilt inner lace (slightly later binding). A very luxurious publication printed by Louis Perrin, not put on the market and PRINTED IN 125 COPIES to be offered to the author's friends. D'Assier de Valenches, not content with enriching this collection with notes that make known the names of the new owners of the fiefs, has completed the work with a map of Forez according to Robert, an alphabetical table of the names of fiefs and a genealogical and historical table of the Counts of Forez with their alliances. A masterpiece of typographic execution: Beautiful tinted laid paper, Roman and italic august characters, ornate letters and headbands are designed with an elegant richness, and are for the most part in the purest taste of the Renaissance! (Boitel in RDL of 1859, p. 68). 103Lacking at the bottom of the spine. Copy offered to Jean-Baptiste Randon de Saint Germain Laval.
