Description

Auguste Lancelot accompanied French historian and politician V. Duruy in his voyage to the Orient. A part of this voyage was published by Duruy and illustrated by Lancelot. As the sequel was long in coming, Lancelot was asked to continue himself the story (he is the one describing the visit on our country's territory), that he illustrated with 152 images (80 exclusively about Romanians).
