Most extraordinary, though, are the many vignette illustrations and ornaments of birds, butterflies, seraphs, flowers, stars, masks and shells. These are integrated seamlessly with the text. They somehow manage to exhude a charisma without a wisp of vulgarity, and their effect is bound to be sheer intoxication. The anthology of naive, or deliberately simple, poems, "Toi et Moi" first appeared in Dedicated to Lisbet Marx, who was the original owner of the manuscript and might have commissioned it. Minor rubbing to the spine bands. Clean, bright and tight otherwise.
Decorative devices, head and foot pieces throughout in the form of bouquets, friezes, vases, baskets, as well as decorated letter at the beginning of each section in all. Plates are wonderful baroque woodcuts each illustrating a moral. This would appear to be a second or third edition, the first being in Brunet II , who describes the work as "now a bit rare", mentions a edition without citing this earlier one and clearly meaning a different edition.
Graesse III mentions a edition without detail and thus this might essentially be. With some light scattered soilage, but overall impression is clean other than on some of the plates a prior owner wrote Latin translations of the maxims beneath the printed captions -- never affecting the pictorial image. Also old handwritten cursive notes on title and blank verso.
Attractively rebound in full modern calf with green and red spine labels. Each page is to a large vivid cartoon, a few of which are two-paged, many of which are tinted. Also comes with a two-page advertising supplement. Closed tear along spine of wraps, as is typical. Some soiling on front and back. Mostly clean otherwise. Interiors are tight and pages are generally clean. Half red leather only minimal sized corner pieces with ornamented spines in typical French style of period. Leather spine of volume 1 has repair in upper tip. A bit rough looking along gutter of this volume. Still overall a very good set.
Grandville, J. Maubert; C. Probably Grandville's most famous work, and one that epitomizes best his fantastical imagination. Plates and text clean and attractive. Quarter red morocco with blindstamped red pebbled cloth covers which perfectly match appears full red leather. Raised spine bands and gilt. Rubbing around gutters and the raised bands, and some typical shelfwear besides. Endpapers are a silky moire material, and they have some soiling.
Gilt foreedges. Circa French text. Probably Grandville's most famous work. Quarter red morocco with blindstamped red cloth covers which perfectly match appears full red leather. All edges gilt. In fine condition with particularly bright gilt edges. Nostalgic look at Alsatian village of yore, and as much of Hansi's writings, about the French-ness of the village and demonizing the German occupiers, who were only recently driven out at the time this copy was issued.
The illustrations exude the naive charm of Hansi's best work, whose legacy was to create an enduring visual image of Alsatian life. The decorated cloth boards have soiling and the fabric is worn by the corners and the spine extremities. Inside the pages have age toning but otherwise are clean. Early printing of original edition, with yellow cloth spine.
