La Galerie Notre Dame - CHARLES MERYON - etching with engraving

French, (1821-1868)

Etching with engraving, 1853, Schneiderman 29 (iii/VI), Delteil-Wright 26 (iii/V); edition unknown. 11 x 6 7/8 in. Signed and dated in the plate. This is a superb, early, luminous impression of the very rare third state, before the the top borderline has been strengthened. The margins are full and the paper is a fine laid without a watermark. The condition is excellent other than for a modest little spot of discoloration in the lower margin and a tiny paper loss in the upper right corner of the sheet. This iconic image by Meryon is one of his finest prints. This impression is from the celebrated collection of Henri M. Petiet, Paris, and bears his stamp on the verso, lower left.       SOLD
