Les images des Saints.
Early impression from the first edition published in Paris by Israël Henriet. Before all rework. From the earlies impression available, a second state while the first before the publishers address of Israël is only known from a few examples (R.R.R.R.)
I have a couple of uncut sheet with wide margins. Original pinholes on top where the series was once bound together with a small rope still visible.
With the watermark 'huchet' showing a post horn as called for by Lieure to be found on these early (first) Paris impressions. Before any rework, before altered titles, before text.
Four oval scenes, St Peter visiting St Germanus on his deathbed, wile a bear attacks a man in the background (St Germanus' Day); A Bishop saint greeting another saint (St Maximinus' Day); a female saint praying in a forest (St Emmelia's Day); a priest giving the Holy Sacrament to a female saint seated on a mattress (St Petronilla's Day).
Some text lines filled in in sepia writing.
