Prieur. Pl. 5 "Les Gardes Françaises Sauvant Mr. du Chatelet, Leur Colonel, de l'Effervescence Populaire. le 12 Juillet 1789." From Collection Complète des Tableaux Historiques de La Révolution Française,....
Paris: Chez Auber, 1804. 7 x 9 1/4. Folio. Engraving by Berthault. Full margins. Some foxing at extreme margins. Else, very good condition.
One of a rich compendium of images chronicling the personalities and events of the French Revolution. Each carefully engraved print describes the settings as well as the great moments in this historic period, such as the storming of the Bastille. It is especially poignant to realize that these dramatic and heavily charged images were created and published in France so soon after the Revolution, when interest and emotions were still running high.
