Album Champin

Vues pittoresques du chemin de fer de Paris à Orléans. Paris, Orléans et Tours

Abel Ledoux, A. Gattineau et Bonté, undated (1843).

Folio, title with lithographed vignette, 23 lithographed plates.
Gilt motif on the front cover depicting a Bourdin locomotive.

Cover in very good condition
Gilded edges.

The first 4 plates have the “Collin et Cie éditeurs" dry stamp.

This album was published on the occasion of the inauguration of the Paris-Orléans line, commissioned by the Paris Railway Company in Orléans.
Lovely landscapes drawn and lithographed by Champin and printed by Rigo, showing in particular the locations, rural at the time, of Juvisy, Ivry-sur-Seine, Vitry, Evry.

Plates (23 in total) show views of monuments: the Château de la princesse d'Eckmül in Savigny, the viaduct on the Yvette River, the Château du comte de Talaru in Chamarande, Corbeil.

The scenes also show the life of the trains.

The last two views show Paris at different times: one three centuries before, with the Etienne Marcel wall, the other shows it during the 19th century, when the railways were established.

Some perfect pages, others have foxing.

Jean-Jacques Champin (1796, died in Paris in 1860) was a pupil of Félix Storelli and Auguste Régnier. He is best known for his landscapes and urban views (Benezit)

Ex-libris label from the library of Baronis Surmont.
