Mezzotint (Schabkunst) by Robert Lowrie (also spelled Laurie - 1756-1836)

The beautiful mezzotint was once trimmed to edges. The title part was separated from the image and is now united again with a strip of old paper (see image).

The delicate mezzotint shows marks of age and use, as does the title part. The scene, however, is very pretty: An ambulant print seller his showing his prints held in a remarkable device worn over the shoulder.

"Le Bouquiniste" Antique book seller

Lithograph by Francois Villain. Very fine and vivid original hand coloring. Paris, at Ostervald, ca.- 1830

One of those famed open-air book dealers, who were anywhere between morose and entertaining, from dull to intellectual and whose metal boxes used to open on the Rive Gauche bank of the Seine on misty to sunny days. The boxes contained veritable trouvailles and treasures still in the sixties of the last century. I used to stroll there frequently the few steps from my less than comfortable dwelling during my 18 months study séjour in Paris and got my used non academic and my academic books there.

The poem underneath reads:


Ah ! je la tiens que je suis aise !

Oui c'est la bonne édition

Car voilà, page neuf et treize,

Les deux fautes d'impression

Qui ne sont pas dans la mauvaise.

There are some traces of age and use: A vertical fold along left edge outside image, Trimming all around without disturbing image. A general age toning. A small crease in upper left. Condition suits the subject matter. Not much to worry about unless you are a perfectionist.
