Description

Hand-colored title of Les étoiles: dernière féerie (The stars: one last enchantment) illustrated by J.-J. Grandville and published posthumously. The texts were provided by Louis-François Raban, under the pen-name of Comte Fœlix, and Joseph Mery.

The illustration shows two female figures floating in the sky on each side of a crescent moon from which garlands of stars flow, forming a decorative chandelier-like motif around the hand-drawn title, then shooting down toward a half-visible globe bearing the authors’ and publisher’s names.
