Lithography, 160 x 192 mm (at the boderline). Bruzard 22, Beraldi 117

Very fine impression printed on wove paper. A few foxmarks in the margins; full margins (sheet: 268 x 365 mm).

The scene shows a commissionaire carrying three lithographic stones on his back. On the quay, probably one of the quays of the Seine in Paris, bibliophiles are rummaging through the boxes of the booksellers.

Louis-Maurice Bruzard indicates that "this piece served as a frontispiece to the first Album entirely composed of works by M. Horace Vernet." (translated by us). The printer was Fran├žois Seraphin Delpech (1778 - 1825).
