LES PRESIDENTS DES ETATS-UNIS

NY: Published by J. Dorival, 52 Ann St., No. 128, nd [1829-1837?]. Lithograph. 49 x 37 cm. Matted. The print shows bust portraits of the first seven presidents, George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, John Quincy Adams, and Andrew Jackson, floating in the clouds, above an eagle with a stars and stripes shield, a banner "E Pluribus Unum", with arrows and an olive branch in its claws, and with 20 stars about its head. Some shallow chipping around edges of print and a few closed tears repaired on verso with Japanese paper, but not touching image. Some loss to upper corners, moderate soiling, upper half of print more age darkened than lower half, most notable on verso. Still a clear image. Item #64768

This lithograph is very similar to one created by the lithographer Antoine Maurin, and printed in Paris by Pierre Langlume between 1825-1829. That image depicted the first six Presidents of the United States [see the Maurin version in the collection of the Library of Congress]. The copy here, published in New York and executed in a very similar style, adds Pres. Andrew Jackson. We have been unable to find copies of this lithograph on OCLC, although John Dorival is listed at 52 Ann St. in the 1830s, as publisher of several other graphic art works.
