The complete suite of twenty-one plates are all bound into the original printed wrappers of part 2. All edges gilt. Housed in a custom-made quarter black morocco clamshell case. Only one institutional copy worldwide, at Yale. No copies have come to auction within the last thirty-five years. Not in Colas, Lipperheide, or Hiler. An excellent copy, the vivid hand-coloring startlingly bright and fresh, of an extremely scare collection. The contemporary manners, customs, and costumes of Parisian society in typical scenes, illustrated with great charm and wry,understated humor by Swiss genre painter and lithographer Jean Gabriel Scheffer (1797-1876), who studied with Regnault and was a friend of Corot, Aligny, and Léopold Robert. His work was shown at the Salon de Paris beginning in 1822; his reputation as a designer of many wryly humorous lithographs, typically signed "J.S." was firm. (See Benezit Vol. 9, p.354). Closely associated with printer-publisher Chez Martinet and lithographer Villain, Scheffer also created Scènes de jeunes gens (1825), Ce qu'on dit et ce qu'on pense (1829), and Petits travers (1830) with them.
