Rare copy preserved in its beautiful publisher’s binding of one of the most beautiful books illustrated by Grandville, a masterpiece of romantic illustration.

“Extremely rare in its publisher’s binding,” Gumuchian, 2801.

First edition and first printing of volume 1, dated 1842, and the second printing of volume 2, dated 1844.

Beautifully illustrated with 201 tipped-in figures and 120 vignettes by Grandville.

Contains 4 previously unpublished short stories by Balzac: "Les amours de 2 bêtes", "Les peines de coeur d'une chatte anglaise", "Le guide âne", "Le voyage d'un lion à Paris" and one
by Nodier: "Les Tablettes de la Girafe".

“This famous publication is no longer presented. Satire on the contemporary Parisian society of the July Monarchy by Hetzel, who under the pseudonym Stahl wrote several texts and commissioned others to the most famous writers of his time: Balzac, Musset, Sand, La Bedollière... The last chapter recounts the imprisonment of various writers who can be seen in locations in the Jardin des plantes. One of Grandville's great imaginative works, full of verve and fantasy.”

Jean Ignace Isidore Gérard Grandville & Honoré de Balzac & George Sand etc.
