Quarante Clichés-Glace, tirés sur les plaques provenant de la collection de M. Cuvelier
Paris: Maurice Le Garrec, 1921. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow. Two letterpress bifolia: half-title and title, and 'Avertissement' and table. 40 cliché verre prints, originally 1854-1904, on smooth wove paper, each print with the stamp of Sagot-Le Garrec (L. 1766a), and numbered 44/150 in pencil on the reverse, the full sheets as published, hinged at the upper reverse corners, in mounts stamped with the plate numbers. 481 x 394 mm overall, plate sizes vary. Loose in original cloth-board portfolio, gilt-lettered on front. Some staining to text leaves, plates in fine condition. LIMITED EDITION, number 44 of 150 sets. A superb collection by the Parisian art dealer and publisher Maurice Le Garrec reprinting cliché verre plates from Corot, the master of the technique, Daubigny, Delacrois, Millet, and Rousseau, all masters of the Romantic and Barbizon schools. Though they are reproduced in black rather than the characteristic brown inks of the 19th-century impressions, the scarce portfolio increased public awareness of the printmaking process.
