ONE OF THE CLASSIC NOVELS OF THE PRE-ROMANTIC MOVEMENT [KRÜDENER, Barbara Juliane de Vietinghoff, Baronne de.]

Valérie, ou Lettres de Gustave de Linar à Ernest de G… Tome premier [– second].

Rare first edition of Valérie, the most famous novel by the Russian mystic and novelist Madame de Krüdener (1766–1824), who for a time exerted an influence over Tsar Alexander I. The novel created a literary sensation, and became one of the classic novels of the pre-Romantic movement in France, receiving translations into a number of languages (although not apparently into Russian until 2000). Written partly as a roman à clef, it is largely inspired by the author’s romantic liaison with Alexandre de Skatieff.

He also notes Buquoy as a practical connoisseur of homeopathy.
