Croquis d'Apres A. Grévin par F. Cosnefroy

Croquis d'Apres A. Grévin par F. Cosnefroy

Album of seventeen miniature-sized pen-and-ink caricatures

Album of seventeen miniature-sized pen-and-ink caricatures

1857. Morocco spine. Blindstamped cloth boards. . Very Good. Oblong, 11 by 19 cm. Nine leaves with 17 cartoons or caricatures, all done on a miniature scale, which is a part of their charm.

Custom clamshell cloth box, with leather spine title label. Good. N.d., circa 1870. Caricatures on heavy card stock, 29 by 13.5 cm. Each card contains a single person caricatured. The caricatures are evocative of the type one finds on Vinegar or Poison Valentines of the day, and a few might bring to mind caricatures in Puck and the handiwork of Thomas Nast. The caricatures have a deliberate crudity to them. Among subjects lampooned are suffragettes, the Catholic clergy, various low life,... Read more
