L'Âne au pré (Donkey in the Field). 1862. Original cliché-verre. Delteil, Melot 143. 6 5/8 x 8 (image and sheet). Edition 150, #71.

Signed in the plate in reverse. $750.
The Cuvelier collection of lifetime cliché-verres was re-printed in small editions of 10-15 prints in 1911 when it was acquired by Bouasse-Lebel. The plates passed to Le Garrec, successor to Edmund Sagot at the Galerie Sagot-Le Garrec, who printed the principle edition (150) before chipping the corners of the glass plates as cancellation and giving them to museum collections. The Le Garrec impressions are on gelatine paper and retain the photographically printed scratches and fingerprints in the borders and the 'black' edge of the glass plate.
