Illustrated manuscript volume of poetry, comprising ‘Vingt-six janvier 1836’ by Azaïs, and ‘Marie’ by Labor.
An attractive presentation volume, with poems by Azaïs (1805-1888) and Labor (1813-1900), and fine vignette sketches. Azaïs, later author of Les Troubadours de Béziers (1869) was a member of the Félibrige, the literary organization founded by Frédéric Mistral to promote Occitan language and culture. Labor was a landscape painter, a secretary and close friend of Lamartine, author of a novel (Marguerite, 1837), and the founder and first conservator of the Musée des Beaux Arts de Béziers; the vignettes are presumably by him.
