Title: Paris d'après la photographie. . Lithographié par Ch. Rivière .
Description: 19. Paris, publié par Michel, Passage Choiseul, s.d. (1856), oblong in-4°, 25.5 x 34 cm, title page + 40 chromolithographic plates ( views of Paris). Bound in red half publisher's cloth, frontcover richly embossed and gilt with romantic ornaments. Binding with some use, fly leaves a bit foxed but still a fine clean copy. The views lithographed by Rivière were listed for copyright according the periodical '' La Bibliographie de la France'', 29th of November 1856, item 2396. They represent a very interesting transitional type of print. Rivière based his very accurate drawings on the newly invented medium ; photography. Soon his art would be completely obsolete ; as photography itself , becoming steadily cheaper, would replace these kind of albums. The views of Paris' streets and monuments are very lively and charming. .
