Title:
Souvenirs de Paris et de ses Environs

Author:
[Lemercier, Rose-Joseph, lithographer]

Place:
[Paris]

Publisher:
[Chez Wild and A. Hauser]

Date:
[c.1860]

Description:

Unpaginated. 57 plates of views and scenes of Paris by artists Jules B. Arnout and A. Deroy. (Oblong 4to) 26x35 cm (10¼x13¾") original black cloth stamped in gilt and blind.

One plate in triplicate. A fine and classic collection of views of Paris, though apparently a hybrid assemblage of undetermined bibliographic origins. The plates have two different imprints: Wild, Passage de Sauman 38, and A. Hauser, Boul. des Italiens 11, but they are all lithographed by the famous Rose-Joseph Lemercier. The numbering of the plates is not entirely sequential, pointing to the probability that the volume was put together with an assemblage of remainder plates from other works.
