[SCHEFFER, JEAN-GABRIEL] J.S-; PIGAL; &C - Recueil Des Scènes Familiéres, Et de Société de Paris

Title: Recueil Des Scènes Familiéres, Et de Société de Paris
Description: Paris: n.p. [Chez Martinet], 1824. Exceedingly Scarce Familiar Scenes of Parisian Society Caught in the Wry [SCHEFFER, Jean-Gabriel]. J.S -, PIGAL, &c, &c. Recueil des Scènes Familiéres, et de Société de Paris. Paris: n.p. [Chez Martinet], 1824. First (only) issue, complete. Folio (13 7/16 x 10 3/8 inches: 342 x 262 mm.). Five parts in one volume. Thirty-six hand-colored lithographed plates, most signed: Chez Martinet, Lith. de Villain; numbered and captioned. Plates 4 through 36 have the blind stamp "JS" (Jean-Gabriel Scheffer). Early twentieth century three quarter dark brown morocco over marbled boards ruled in blind. Spine with five raised bands, lettered in gilt in compartments, marbled end-papers. An excellent copy, the hand-coloring bright and fresh, a few plates with light staining, toning, or wash marks. An extremely scarce book. We know of only two other complete copies (both in private collections). Only one institutional copy worldwide, at Yale, but it is incomplete with only three parts (twenty-one plates). No copies have come to auction within the last thirty-five years. Lipperheide's copy contained only thirty-four plates. Not in Colas, Hiler, OCLC or RLIN. 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.
