    Four stipple engravings with hand-coloring, most likely from Pomologie française; recueil des plus beaux fruits cultivés en France. (Paris: 1846). All are in very good condition with overall toning and spotting. Royale hâtivel has a thin strip of dampstaining along the left edge. Raisin précoce is specifically attributed to Poiteau and has darker spotting in the image area. Ronce à fruit bleu is attributed to Turpin and is more heavily toned than the others; it also has some offsetting along the left side. All but the last print have mounting tape to the reverse. All have light penciled notations. The first three prints measure 11.75 x 17 inches, and the last (the Turpin print) measures 14.25 x 19.75 inches.
