About this Item

A Superb Copy Of One of the Master's Earliest SuccessesDORÉ, Gustave. Les Différents Publics de Paris. Paris: Au Bureau du Journal Amusant, [1854]. First edition. Oblong quarto (10 x 13 1/4 in; 254 x 335 mm.). Lithograph title and twenty original lithograph plates. Publisher's lithographed green boards, small piece (1 1/8 inch) missing from top of spine. Ink signature on front free end-paper. Some light foxing, heavier on preliminary leaves). A superb copy of the second 'collection' from the most popular and successful French book illustrator of the mid 19th century. "These twenty lithographs are studies of massed humanity, ranging from the audiences at the great Parisian theatres to the crowds at a wrestling match or a Punch and Judy show. Without exception they are striking in conception and fertile in detail. To compare Doré's version of the reader's room at the library [no. 14, and amongst Doré's celebrated] with Daumier's in Les bas bleus is to ask one's self what word is left for the first if the second is called a caricature. Yet each of Doré's scenes is based on close observation, and the album provides valuable testimony to the manners of the day" (Ray).One of Doré's earliest efforts with which he made his debut at age twenty-two, Les Différents Publics de Paris "scored an easy success?brilliant?masterly lithographed skits on Paris" (Gosling, p. 16, 38). An important volume, and a cornerstone to any collection of Doré.Beraldi Vl, 30. Leblanc, 90. Rahir, 404. Ray, 241.List of Plates:1. Opéra Italien.2. Comédie Francaise.3.
