CHILDREN'S STORE. Journal des jeunes garçons.... - Lot 185 - Binoche et Giquello
CHILDREN'S STORE. Journal des jeunes garçons. Paris, Au Bureau du Magasin des Enfants [Imprimerie Dondey-Dupré], [March 1847-December 1848]. 2 volumes large in-8, green percaline, smooth spine decorated with gilt fillets (Binding of the time).
Complete collection, of great rarity, of the first newspaper for children illustrated with figures printed in colour.
The processes used for engraving and printing were the traditional ones: typography for the text, burin, woodcut and, from 1820, lithography for the illustrations. The colours were, if necessary, applied after printing, with a brush. Only one newspaper, "le Magasin des enfants" (1847-1848), printed by Dondey-Dupré, was illustrated entirely in colour using an original process (Christine Thirion, "?La presse pour les jeunes de 1815 à 1848: essai d'analyse de contenu?", in Bulletin des bibliothèques de France, 1972, n° 3, p. 111-132).
A few light brown spots, otherwise a well preserved copy.
