Condition: The binding of volume 1 has been re-glued (weakened), the text block holds overall well in both volumes, some snags on volume 1, spines and covers adorned with decorative animal motifs (rare), scattered foxing, the covers of volume 2 are insolated, some shifted booklets. Sold as is.

First print of the illustrations, extremely rare, in its publisher's paperboard: “The illustrated paperboard bindings reproduce the general covers (...) extremely rare in a publisher’s binding.” Gumuchian, 2801. (Vicaire, VII, 406-416 ; Brivois, Bibliographie des ouvrages illustrés du XIXe siècle, 364-370.)

Summary: Witty and very funny work, a masterpiece of romantic illustration, in which Grandville mocks human characters by presenting them under the guise of animals. A biting satire of political and social mores that goes well beyond the framework of the 19th century. Enhanced by texts by the best authors of the time. You won’t be able to stop admiring the extraordinary creatures, small and large, created by the author’s fertile imagination.

These copies, in rare publisher’s paperboard bindings are being sold in as is condition.
