Item Description: Chez Aumont n.d. (c.1830), Charles Tilt 0, Paris, London, 1830. Soft cover. Book Condition: Good. [Eugene Le Poittevin] (illustrator). 1st Edition. 12pp. Extremely rare portfolio of 12 plates (complete) of images in silhouette from the celebrated French Artist Eugene LePoittevin (1806-1870). The title in English, "Fantastic Shadows," describes this collection of impish devils and period figures displaying what seems to be a constant struggle against ones morals and bad behavior. Le Poitevin was popular for creating such devil-like figures and used them to humorously satirize the behavior of Parisians at the time. This saucy work shows characters such as skeletons, devils, bugs, imps of all kinds in all manner of going about their trouble making business. Though the title gives credit for the illustrations to LePoitevin, four of the plates contain Poitevin's monogram, 3 are unsigned and 5 are signed in the plate by H. Nicolet, possibly the celebrated natural history illustrator Hercule Nicolet. The artists were close in age and there is a scorpion, fly and a cricket in the work, though Poitevin did have a few aliases, or he may have been having fun at his friends expense ? The oblong portfolio measures 22 3/4" X 16 1/2" with the plates loose and unbound measuring 21 1/2" X 16". The cover has chipping at edges and tears where folded, plates have mild to moderate rusting, I will photograph the two best and the two worst. At the time of this listing only one other copy could be found, it is in the Biblioteque Nationale de France. Bookseller Inventory # 001510

Item Description: Chez Aumont n.d. (c.1830), Charles Tilt 0, Paris, London, 1830. Soft cover. Book Condition: Good. [Eugene Le Poittevin] (illustrator). 12pp. This rare oblong unbound portfolio contains 12 numbered full page plates of racy impish characters that are reeking havoc on the Parisian population. LePoitevin was a very successful French illustrator, cartoonists and marine painter who in his younger years created a sensation with this devilish work.The characters seem to satirize the behavior of all classes of the French public insinuating that it is hard for them to keep a good moral compass. All illustrations are signed in the plates with a Poitevin's monogram. There are mild rust spots in all plates, numbers 11 & 12 are torn about 1/2 way through (see photos) but looks to be easily repairable. I could only find two other copies and both have two "supplemental plates" that are not present here, though there is a period lithographic plate entitled "Les Sauteurs" by Jean Victor Adam inserted with the others. This additional plate contains a flying devil tempting the humans below with their desires. I believe both Poitevin and Adam may have been at The School of Fine Arts at the same time. Lithographed cover with erasure marks and "100" in ink. 23" X 16". Bookseller Inventory # 001511

Item Description: Paris / London: Chez Aumont / Charles Tilt, [1832], 1832. Scarce Complete DevilsHaving Diabolical FunIn a Very Unusual BindingLE POITEVIN, [Eugène Modeste Edmond]. Les Diables de Lithographies. Paris / London: Chez Aumont / Charles Tilt, n.d. [1832]. First edition, complete. Oblong folio (14 3/8 x 21 3/4 in; 363 x 600 mm). Eighty illustrations on twelve black and white lithographed plates, numbered, with two supplemental plates (Petits sujets des diableries manquent le plus souvent, nos. 19 and 26: Paris / London: Aubert / Tilt, 1832) with thirty-five illustrations; a total of fourteen plates in all.Traditional oriental string binding c. 1980 by an unknown hand in full walnut-stained leather with wood-grain highlights over flex-boards with a 159 x 159 mm central panel in wood with two contrasting wood onlays depicting Diables, and four smaller and similar corner-pieces, the whole reiterated on the rear cover with different figures. Original front wrapper preserved. Small 1/4 inch closed tear to right margin of plates 1 and 2; 1/2 inch neat repair to lower margin of plate 6; some soiling to margins; occasional soiling within images. Overall, a near fine copy in a most unusual and attractive binding. Scarce complete. OCLC records only one copy in institutional holdings worldwide. ABPC records only one complete copy at auction since 1923. The album was typically broken up with the prints sold individually and complete copies have become enormously rare.Impish devils dance, make merry, kidnap young maidens, engage in scatological activities, make mischief upon men and women. and generally have a hell of a time as rascals frolicking in diabolical fun. It is the most famous of all works, paint or print, by Le Poitevin, whose "Devilries" established a genre in the wake of the Romantic school's Mephistopheles and Faust, from scenes to fright to scenes that, as here, delight with lively charm. Le Poitevin's devilries with their light, devilish humor became extremely popular with other artists, such as Michael Delaporte and Bayalos.Le Poitevin (1806-1870) was a French painter and lithographer. As a painter, he specialized in marine art , as a lithographer he is best-known today for Devilries. He was a contributor to The Journal of Painters and Charles Philpon's La Caricature. He studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, a pupil of Louis Hersent and Xavier Leprince. Very popular in his time, he exhibited at the Salon from 1831 until his death in 1870 ."Tout autre est Eugène Le Poitevin, le peintre de marines, qui popularise un genre bien différent mais dont le retentissement ne fut pas moins grand. Procédant en droite ligne du Méphistophélès de Faust et des tendances au bizarre de l'école romantique, les diableries de cet artiste vinrent jeter une note pittoresque et amusante au milieu des estampes sans couleur du consciencieux lithographe. Pendant un temps ce ne furent plus que diables et diableries, diables souvent érotiques, diableries plus ou moins légères. Les Diables, Petits sujets de diables, Bizarreries diaboliques, Encore des Diableries; c'est sous ces titres que se répandaient partout les albums à couverture brune de Le Poitevin qu'imitèrent bientôt de Bayalos avec ses Diablotins et Michel Delaporte avec ses Récréations diabolico-fantasmagoriques. Diables blancs et diables noirs suivis de diables rouges et de diables verts. Le diable se glissait partout, commettant mille incongruités, relevait les robes des femmes, les déshabillait comme par enchantement, les mettait en cage, les tirait par les cheveux, ayant toujours à son service un nombre incalculable de petits diablotins courant à tort et à travers les feuilles. Il y eut une telle invasion des sujets de messire Satan que ce ne fut plus, comme dans la chanson, « Vive la lithographie, » mais « au diable, les polissonnes" (Grand-Carteret, Les Moeurs et la caricature en France, p. 174).Le Poitevin (1806-1870) was a French painter and lithographer. As a painter, he specialized in marine art , as a lithographer he is best-known toda. Bookseller Inventory # 02833
