details...

Some engravings from the art magazine La France Illustrée: Journal Littéraire, Scientifique et Religieux from 1878/1879. This was printed in Prais by the Printer of the Apprentice Orphans (Imprimerie des apprentis-Orphelins (Fondation des orphelins apprentis d’Auteuil) for L. Roussel.

This is a large book, since it was originally a newspaper; one consequence is that the images are available in larger sizes than usual.
