In a very good condition. Handsome book, well preserved. ~ First edition. Jules Richard (Thomas-Jules-Richard Maillot) (1825-1899). Louis Isaac Trinquier (1853-1922). The lively plates are the result of a complicated and delicate process, now obsolete, which was invented in the early 1850's by Firmin Gillot. Known as Gillotage, the process turned a lithographic drawing into a relief plate. Employing both planographic and relief methods, the process remained purely manual, involving no photography. The lithograph was transferred to zinc and then etched, in an extremely laborious process, to make a metal relief block from which the final print was made. Noteworthily, many of Daumier's lithographic plates were treated in this way before their publication. Here, the plates are delicately hand-coloured by contemporary hand, rich in detail, and in a particularly good condition. N° de ref. de la librería 5413
