Charles Amedee de Noe (CHAM)
Assemblée Nationale Comique - Vintage Rare Book Illustrated by CHAM - 1850




Assemblée Nationale Comique is an original modern rare book illustrated by CHAM and written by Auguste Lireux (Rouen, 1814 - 1870, Bougival) in 1850. Published by Michel Lévy Frères –Paris. Original First Edition. Format: large 8°. The book includes 625 pages and 20 fully illustrated page lithographs. Mint conditions. Auguste Lireux (Rouen, 1814 - 1870, Bougival). Lireux began, out of college, by founding, in his hometown, a small newspaper, the Indiscret , whose sarcastic and biting tone made him many enemies and which earned him seven or eight duels, where he has almost always been injured. There he recounted the marital misadventures of his compatriots, a process which provided him with a great deal of copy, but which he had to put an end to when a chair-mender outraged in his reputation had not inflicted on him a correction which could have had very serious consequences if the painter Garneray had not come to his aid. Discouraged, in 1841 he went to Paris, where he founded La Patrie which was then regarded as an opposition newspaper. He entered several other newspapers, including the Revue et gazette des théâtres , which then had among its editors Édouard Thierry , the administrator of the Théâtre-Français, the Courrier français (1846), the Revue comique (1848), the Messenger from theaters , to the screening , etc. In the various sheets to which he contributed, he began to continue with his jokes the Odeon, where he contributed to the sudden resurrection of tragedy, eventually succeeding Violet d'Epagny as director, in 1843.
