Here are both volumes 1 and 2 of Public And Private Life Of Animals by P-J Stahl and illustrated by J.J. Grandville. These are original French editions and in very nice condition. They're leather bound and dated 1842, but I'm in doubt that these are actually from 1842. Perhaps there are book collectors here on CW that can shed some light on the actual date of these.
J.J Grandville's illustrations of anthropomorphic animals are truly amazing. These books are filled with his incredible illustrations. I've wanted these books for years and my wife and sons gifted me with these on Christmas day. I have the English version in pdf form, but I'm truly grateful to own a set of these wonderful French books. I may post more of J.J. Grandville's illustrations from these wonderful books.
Thank you all for stopping in for a look and Happy 2019 to you all!!
