Sainte-Beuve,... 2nd edition revised and considerably increased. Paris, Didier, 1862. In-8, 215 x 130 mm, blue morocco with lace decoration signed Gruel, spine decorated with five nerves, gilt edges (spine slightly rubbed and uniformly faded). [4], xxxvi, 475 pp. Portrait in frontispiece, 1 plate of notated music. Enriched with 2 autograph letters from Félicité de Lamennais (1782-1854), signed "F.", dated Paris, August 20 and 28, 1846 (2 bi-fold of 3 p.), to a "dear friend" and to "Mon cher Ange", probably her brother-in-law Ange Blaize de Maisonneuve.
