SAINT-NON (JEAN CLAUDE RICHARD DE)Voyage pittoresque ou description des royaumes de Naples et de Sicile, FIRST EDITION, 5 vol., with SIGNED CONTRACT FOR PUBLICATION, half-titles, vignette title engravings, complete with all the 305 full page engraved plates by Claude-Augustin Duflos Le Roy, Prévost, Saint-Non and others after Fragonard, Jean-Pierre-Louis-Laurent Houel, Hubert Robert and Saint-Non, engraved head- and tail-pieces, uncut, contemporary manuscript corrections to two text leaves, corner stained to approximately 20 leaves in volume 2, occasional age-toning and/or spotting, contemporary half morocco, gilt spine, with custom made modern slipcases, shelfwear to covers, tear at head of spine of volumes 2 and 3, lower joint cracked volume 4 part 2 [Blackmer 1473; Brunet V 55-56; Cohen-de Ricci 928-930; Millard French 148; Ray French 34], folio (516 x 340mm.), Paris, 1781-1786; together with MANUSCRIPT DOCUMENT SIGNED ("Laborde," "L'abbé d' Saint-Non," and "La Bretesche"), being the original contract for publication between Laborde and Saint-Non, tipped in to volume 1, 8 pp., stitched, Paris, August 5, 1777, with an added codicil dated 31 March 31 1778, signed below by Laborde, Saint-Non and La Bretesche, docketed on verso "Convention entre L'abbé de Saint Non et B'in de la Borde en Rich'd de la Bretesche pour la publication Voyage Pittoresque a Naples et en Sicile", (330 x 215mm.) (6)FootnotesA FINE LARGE, COMPLETE AND UNCUT COPY OF SAINT-NON'S CLASSIC WORK, WITH THE ORIGINAL SIGNED CONTRACT FOR ITS PUBLICATION.
One of the most celebrated illustrated books of the eighteenth century, Saint-Non's Voyage Pittoresque was published between 1781-1785, with the Livraisons containing the plates beginning as early as 1778. This fine copy, including the rarely found "phallus" plate in volume 2, is accompanied by the original contract between Saint-Non and his brother [Louis Richard de] La Bretesche, and Jean-Benjamin Laborde, the publisher who originally conceived of the project. In the contract, dated 5 August 1777, Saint-Non and his brother agree to invest 30,000 livres against the 30,000 livres already spent by Laborde. But in the codicil added the following year, Laborde admits he has only spent 10,000 livres and the terms are amended accordingly. The production, even under the amended terms, would ruin the wealthy Saint-Non. A fascinating look at the origins of "one of the monuments of 18th-century book production" (Blackmer 1473).
