Imagerie d'Epinal

Original, hand-coloured lithographs from circa 1860-1890.

"Imagerie d'Epinal Album d' Images" by various French artists.
Printed and hand coloured in France expressly for the Humoristic Publishing Company of Kansas City, Missouri by Jean-Charles Pellerin's Imagerie d'Epinal printing house, which was founded in 1796.
These historically-important graphics presage the format used by Hal Foster in his Prince Valiant strips by some fifty years, and are clear forerunners of the modern day comic book.

Sheet size: 11.75 x 15.75 inches, lithographed on thin broadsheet paper, blank verso
Note: the paper appears somewhat darker in the scans than in reality.

SOME TYPICAL AGE-TONING TO BE EXPECTED, AS WELL AS MINOR EDGE/CORNER WEAR AND SHORT TEARS. PLEASE REFER TO ENLARGEMENTS BY CLICKING ON THUMBNAIL IMAGES PROVIDED.
