Attached is a set of engraved suite defêts:
1/ - 30 different plates by Georges Jeanniot in different states (in total 50 plates) on a suite of 35 engravings belonging to Jean Richepin's book "Les petits gagne-pain parisiens" published in Paris and engraved for Jean Borderel in 1927. This volume in-4, not paginated, gathered 29 poems of Richepin with calligraphy and engraved text. The work should have contained 6 additional poems that death prevented the author from writing. However, Jeanniot had already made the engravings, i.e. 6 h-t and 6 title banners. In total, the book thus contained 35 h-t and 35 headbands. The edition was only 30 copies, of which 3 were on Japon. We enclose 3 of the 29 poems engraved on 6 leaves with 3 headbands and 3 h-t (present in the suite).
2/ - 21 different engraved plates by Léon Carré dated 1911 (bowl size: minimum 7,5 x 10,5 cm, maximum 9,1 x 10,5 cm) printed on Hollande van Gelder. Incomplete suite of Leconte de Lisle's "Poèmes barbares" published in Paris by Jean Borderel in 1911. The work included 1 frontispiece, 2 vignettes (on the title and on the table) and 22 in-t.
