- Curator's comments
- From "Iconographie française, ou Choix de deux cents portraits d'hommes et de femmes qui se sont acquis en France depuis le règne de Charles VII jusqu'à la fin de celui de Louis XVI", a series of 200 lithographic portraits published in 1825-1840.
Similar series published by Delpech were:
"Iconographie des contemporains", 200 portraits of French figures active from 1789-1828
"Celébrités contemporaines", portraits of French figures active from 1828.
The series were later re-issued and, in the case of "Célébrités", continued, by Delpech's successor, Rosselin.
Not to be confused with an in-8º series published in 1829-1840 under a very similar title; prints from that series are anonymous.
Same border as 1917,1208.3906.
