Manuel Pratique du Lithographe. Ouvrage qui a obtenu une médaille de la Société d'encouragement pour l'industrie nationale, au Concoures de 1830, augmente de notes sur les nouveaux procedes avec les lois & ordonnances qui regissent cette profession par M. Jules Desportes, Imprimeur Lithographe
Paris: Chez l'auteur. 1834. First edition, xxxii,230,[8]pp., [jump in pagination from 203-208 but complete], the text is entirely in lithographic script, 4 plates of lithographic utensils and materials, the fore-edge of the upper board has suffered from what appears to be a spill of acid (this was no doubt done by a practising lithographer), this has burnt through the board and effected the blank fore-edge of the first 25 leaves, it is a little unsightly but doesn't effect the text, cont. quarter calf, over patterned paper boards, rubbed. "Jules Desportes was a lithographic printer of note who founded and managed the first lithographic trade journal, 'Le Lithographe, journal des artistes et des imprimeurs' (Paris and Rotterdam, 1837-48)... he exercised an important influence on French lithography in the 1830s and 1840s, and his 'Manuel pratique du lithographe' provides the best example I know of the work of a lithographic printer who used the process of lithography to produce his own book."—Twyman. Twyman, Early Lithographed Books. pp.263-64; Bigmore & Wyman I, p.165.
