Album à l'usage des peintres ou choix de vingt genres de lettres pour spécimens d'enseignes.
Poitiers: Gauvin, (1846). Oblong folio. (1), 20ff. Lithographed title page followed by twenty plates containing a variety of alphabets for commercial artists, designed by Poisson and lithographed by Gauvin. Poisson's collection of alphabets, several of which seem rather modern, was intended for sign- and billboard-makers and artists who created various promotional material. A scarce piece of provincial printing that is not noted in any of the standard references on the lettering arts; the dating here is derived from the sole recorded copy at the Bibliothèque Nationale de France. Scattered light foxing, several creased page corners, otherwise a very good copy in likely original plain salmon wrappers, which show minor edgewear and soiling.
