Original Drawings by Robert Cruikshank [for] Chronicles of the Bastille
London, 1845. Full Morocco. Cloth Slipcase.. Fine. 4to. 27 by 20 cm. The Chronicles of the Bastille, Louis Alexis Chamerovzow, first appeared in 1845 and featured Cruikshank's drawings. The twelve watercolors here are dated 1844 or1845. Also, embedded into the back of the front cover is the steel plate used to make the steel engraved title page of the novel. As a title page an engraved copy of this plate is used. On the backs, and sometimes in the margins, are light pencil notes that serve as captions for the watercolors and provide information as to placement in the book. It is unknown whether these notes were preliminary to the publication or were done by a later hand. Bound elegantly by H. Zucker of Philadelphia, with gilt filets and turn-ins.
