JARRY DE MANCY, Adrien (1796--1862)
Iconographie instructive.
Paris: de l'imprimerie de Rignoux, [c. 1828?].
[48] leaves : steel-engr. ports. ; 26.8 cm. (small 2°)

Running title. Imprint varies: twenty-four leaves (some dated 1827 at the foot of the portrait) have the imprint of Rignoux; the remainder (some dated 1828) have the imprint of Paul Renouard. According to the February 1828 issue of the Journal des Savants, p. 117, Jarry de Mancy began issuing a collection of portraits "accompagnés et entourés" with biographical, chronological and bibliographical notes while working on his Atlas historique et chronologique des littératures anciennes et modernes, des sciences et des beaux-arts which was completed in 1831. The leaves of the 'Iconographie Instructive' were issued individually at 50 centimes each, and by February 1828 twenty-three had appeared with the imprint of Rignoux at the foot of the text. Evidently in 1828 the printing was taken over by Renouard. By 1834 the printer was Bénard and the work had the title: Iconographie instructive, ou collection de portraits de personnages les plus célèbres de l'histoire moderne. The collection of 48 plates described here can probably be dated to 1828 or early 1829.
