Galerie de Florence

non-fiction, pub:1845

From Notes on the Works of Dumas by C. Conrad Cady:
    Galerie de Florence was "gravée sur cuivre et publiée par une société d'amateurs sous la direction d'un comité artistique." Baron Hector Garriod continued Dumas' work and republished it with more material in 1859.

From A Bibliography of Alexandre Dumas père by Frank Wild Reed:
     In his "Mémoires" Dumas speaks of being at work on the "Galerie des Offices" at the time of his residence at Florence between mid-1840 and mid-1842. At the time of the famous trial of 1847 he stated that this work had been published at Florence, and that he had made an agreement with Béthune to issue it in France. Apparently the first part consisted of what we now know as "Les Médicis," the second of "Michel-Ange" and "Raphael," and the third of ''Andre del Sarto." "Michel-Ange" and "Raphael" now form part of the "Trois Maîtres;" "André del Sarto" is one of the articles in "Italiens et Flamands."
     (Refer to "Les Médicis," "Trois Maîtres" and "Italiens et Flamands.")
     "La Galerie de Florence, gravée en cuivre et publiée par un Société d'amateurs, texte en français," par Alex. Dumas : Florence, Béthune, pp. 96,1841-42. Dumas credits this with 4 volumes in his letter of Feb. 7, 1845 to the Société des Hommes de Lettres.
