L'Illusration advertisement

This is an advertisement for L'Illustration probably prepared by an illustrator for the magazine specially for Hector Bossange's 1845 catalogue. The magazine was only in its second or third year of publication, and it presumably wanted to assist Bossange in building up its circulation. The image appeared on an early page of the magazine in a section devoted to illustrated books, reproducing sample images from many books.
