About this Item

Ornately blindstamped tan morocco; oblong folio (243x328mm); 60 leaves, containing 76 brilliantly hand-painted prints, of which at least 68 are lithographs, each trimmed to the plate and inlaid; ranging in size from about 66x60mm to 250x215mm. We can ascribe 29 to Deveria (many signed in the plate); 32 to Grenier (many signed in the plate); and one to Bellange (signed and dated 1827); others may be ascribed to Lami and Colin. Includes 10 of Deveria's large studies of women in the boudoirs, and many small ones of women and children; numbers 11, 49, 52, and 62 are from Grenier's "Album Lithographie" of 1828 (port scenes and dock workers, hunting scenes, peasant women and children). The difference between the uncolored and colored prints is extraordinary -- the coloration is clearly the work of a single artist, and highly accomplished, possibly the work of Charles Caussade (b. 1837), as an inscription on the flyleaf reads, "A ma charmante Fiancee, un souvenir de mon chere Pere / J. Caussade / 8 Avril 84." Some light scuffing along joints and edges of boards, else fine. A lovely, unique volume. Bookseller Inventory # D12460
