[Doll's Alphabet]. Lith. Ch. Fernique. Paris. [Circa 1855]. (17 x 11.8 cm). Leporello of (24) lithographed plates in black, stenciled and enhanced with gum arabic: publisher's light blue paper boards, plate of the letter A, featuring two women in a store and a child carrying a doll, applied on the first board and framed with a frieze of gilt embossed paper. Uncommon alphabet book. Twenty-five lithographed, hand-colored and gummed plates (including the cover plate) printed on one side and featuring the letters of the alphabet. V and x are grouped together on the same plate and, as in all alphabets of this period, W is absent. According to the Bibliothèque nationale de France, Charles Fernique, printer and lithographer at 15 rue de Clichy in Paris, was active from 1844 to 1869. The daily life of a doll under the Second Empire: its Purchase, its Baptism, the Dinettes, the Walk in the Champs-Elysées and an Unfortunate moment when the yards hit its buttocks. Work with the setting in colors always bright. Spine faded and rubbing to the original cardboard.
