Description: PIERRE TEYSSONNIERES (1834-?) was an etcher who specialized in reproducing popular contempory paintings of the 19th century for the general public as an affordable alternative to the actual paintings. Offered here is a book containing 48 original etchings by Tessonniers plus 2 double page etchings [middle fold] making it a total of 50 etchings. The 48 etchings are actually 24 images; 24 in black and 24 in light brown [bistre] ink. These are contained on a 1894 edition book Victor Hugo's Works, this being BUG-JARGAL. EDITION DE BIBLIOPHILE, LIMITED TO 250 copies on Japanese vellum. Bug-Jargal is a novel by Victor Hugo. First published in 1826, it is a reworked version of an earlier short story of the same name published in the Hugo brothers' magazine Le Conservateur littéraire in 1820. The novel follows a friendship between the enslaved African prince of the title and a French military officer named Leopold D'Auverney during the tumultuous early years of the Haitian Revolution. Hugo later claimed that the story was to have been part of a collaborative work called Contes sous la Tente (Tales under a Tent), and that he had written it in 1818 (at the age of sixteen) in two weeks; the manuscript is however dated April 1819. Condition: blue cloth covers are very good; was not issued in dust jacket; 304 pages, 5-3/4 x 9 in. All of the etchings are in VERY FINE condition.
