Blaeu was instrumental in driving this dominance in his lifetime, and this legacy was continued by his sons. Overall toning, repair to bottom of centerfold. Minor staining along top margin.

I have to congratulate you and Argosy Book store. I have received "Fêtes Galantes" very promptly on Thursday and had no tax to pay (very rare 'cause French customs are very greedy when parcels arrived from the States). Love to do business with you ! Best regards - M.A.
