"Between 1825 and 1827 Monnier passed much of his time in London..On his return to Paris he embarked on a series of albums in which he recorded the manners and humors of the city with unprecedented profusion. Between 1826 and 1830 he satisfied the insatiable demand for his designs with almost 500 lithographs, nearly all of which were drawn with a pen and colored by hand. For each design he himself colored a master print and carefully supervised its subsequent preparation" (Ray, p. 199). François Séraphin Delpech was a French lithographer, mainly of portraits and costumes after his contemporaries.  His portrait lithographs are in the collection of Britain's National Portrait Gallery and the Louvre. He also lithographed the work of others, as here. Marie 305-310. .
