Description: This lithographic print originates from: 'Nouveau Larousse Illustre en sept volumes.', Directeur Claude Auge, Paris, published 1897-1904, with a supplement added in 1907. The Nouveau Larousse illustre (New Larousse Illustrated) was an illustrated French language encyclopedia published by Larousse between 1897-1904, in 7 volumes and a supplement. It was essentially a scaled-down version of the 'Grand dictionnaire universel du XIXe siecle.' (Great universal dictionary of the 19th century) of Pierre Larousse, but updated and written in a more neutral, scientific style under the editorship of Claude Auge.

Artists and Engravers: Pierre Larousse (1817-1875). Claude Auge (1854-1924). This plate by M. Dessertenne.
