His albums, some of which are extremely rare, bear witness to a Bordeaux that Féret predicted had already disappeared by the end of the 19th century. Precise details of all album plates and original pictorial work. Labadie announces 5 plates for "le vieux La Teste" which are not in this copy. Provenance: Printed bookplate of Gustave Labat, with a series of documents addressed to him and letters in his name.
