    Hello everyone!!
    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!!

    Scott

      I see no reason to believe them not 1840s. Boards are right. Paper's right (using a cotton-blend). Printing and engraving looks right. Spines may(?) have been redone professionally but look fine too.

      LOL Just think what he could of came up with if he had a computer with photo shop...
      Jean Ignace Isidore Gérard, known by the pseudonym of J. J. Grandville. Illustrator, printmaker, painter, draughstman and caricaturist. Born in Nancy, he moved to Paris in 1825. He published different series of satires (pen lithographs to be hand-coloured) such as 'Les Métamorphoses du jour' and the 'Voyage pour l'éternité'. From 1830 until 1835 he became one ofthe main contributors to 'La Caricature' and 'Le Charivari'. As Charles Philipon, he satirized the governement of Louis-Philippe. The lithographs for 'La Caricature' were executed in crayon and not in pen and are close to the works of Traviès and Daumier. Not all lithographs by Grandville were executed by him: printers working for Philipon such as Eugène Forest transferred the designs to the stone.
      From 1836 he moved from lithography to wood-engraving, for which he produced numerous designs for publishers until his death.

      Yes, I can only imagine what he could've done with photo shop:)) Thanks for the wonderful information you've provided. So awesome!!
