Title: L'Eclipse Journal Hebdomedaire Nos 219-270
Description: 6eme Annee l873. . L'ECLIPSE was the successor to LA LUNE after it was banned by the censor and continued in the same format; large four page broadshieets with a full page hand-coloured caricature cartoon on the front cover, These were almost all by ANDRE GILL (the few not by him by JOB Alfred le Petit and others) Gills monumental caricature portraits have great power and though many were of now forgotten politicans and writers, they still find that archtypal voice - the physiognomy still revealing the underlying characteristics of the subjects (and of course for the historian of French polititcs they throw a bright ight on the contemporary scene) Cloth backed card covers Postage at cost.
