GRANDVILLE, J. J
LES FLEURS ANIMEES
Garnier Freres, Paris, 1867. Two quarto (7" x 10-3/4") volumes bound in half green calf leather with gilt lettering and green marbled boards. Illustrated with 52 superb anthropomorphic hand-colored plates (including 2 title pages), 2 black-and-white plates, and numerous wood-engravings in the text, all after J. J. Grandville. Text by several contributors. Grandville was a caricaturist best known for presenting animals and flowers in human form and using them to satirize the French social and political milieu of his period. Foxing to the text, but the color plates are quite clean. A few plates loose or detached in the second volume. Very Good set of this classic [Attributes: Hard Cover]
Bookseller: Charles Agvent, est. 1987, ABAA, ILAB [Fleetwood, PA, U.S.A.]
