Antique lithograph of the 'Eglise de l'abbaye de St Denis' just outside Paris, where the tombs of many kings of France are.
It is a book plate from 'Paris dans sa splendeur. Monuments, vues, scènes historiques, description et histoire.'
Printed and edited by Henry Charpentier in the 1860s. Please note, the title page in the first photograph is not for sale.

Drawings and lithographs by Philippe Benoist for the most part and with the help of photography.
The book is usually in 3 volumes and comes with texts from different writers. It looks like the lithographs I have were never bound in a book.

As I do not have the complete book I'm selling the plates separately. There are more listed in my shop and more to come!
I will always combine postage on multiple purchases- just contact me for a quote.

I acquired these illustrations in this current condition. Condition varies so please examine the photos. Most have worn edges with with small tears and age marks like browning and spotting (slightly darker in person). Some damaged corners and yellowing. Some pages have fold marks and creases.
Not necessarily printed straight or in centre of page.
This is an original not a modern photocopy.

Each page measures approximately 50.3x 34.6 cm / 19.8 x 13.38 inches.
The printed area (not including text) is about 36 x 26 cm / 14.17 × 10.23 inches.
It will be shipped flat in a strong card envelope.

The pictures are part of the description.

Import duties and taxes are the buyer's responsibility.
