About This Item

Paris: Enoch & Co. & Ernest Flammarion, 1902. Oblong 4to. Copyright 1902. Color pictorial boards. Extremely nice in the scarce illustrated dust jacket (lower wrapper discolored and with a few chips but basically intact). With nineteen full page color lithograph illustrations facing pages of music and verse, almost all with charming vignettes by Lucien Metivet. Jane Vieu was a composer of art songs and operettas and collaborated on other illustrated books. Metivet was an illustrator for the journal Le Rire. Modernized version of Perrault's fairy tale. Shadow theater plays, developed and directed by Henri Rivière, were popular events at the Chat Noir, the avant-garde cabaret. Illuminated cut-out silhouette forms moved across the stage, their shadows projected onto a screen. They were converted into color lithographs for the books that were contemporaneously produced. They influenced early films and the art of Lautrec, Bonnard and Vuillard. An illustration can be found on my website by clicking on Catalogue 31 (item 72b).. Color Pictorial Boards. About Fine/Very Good. Illus. by Lucien Metivet. Oblong 4to.
