PALLIÈRE, [León] (1787-1820). Album Palliere Escenas Americanas Reduccion de Cuadros, aquarelles y bosquejos. Buenos Aires: Fusoni [1864].

Rare album of lithographs made in Buenos Aires. The 52 South American scenes were drawn by Pallière and then printed as lithographic plates by J. Pelvilain. Most plates are of Argentina, with a few of Brazil, Uruguay, Chile, and Bolivia. The views consist primarily of rural scenes, and many of these images portray local inhabitants in a variety of activities. Pallière was born in 1823 in Rio de Janeiro to French parents. He travelled to France as a young child and eventually studied art there. He continued his artistic training both in South America and in Europe before returning to South America, where he travelled for the next decade in Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Chile, and Bolivia, producing the images found in this volume. Palau 211114.

Oblong folio (304 x 450mm). 52 lithograph plates, nearly all tinted (some foxing to margins). Modern half morocco over pebbled boards.
