= Cf. Vicaire III, p.241; Sander 232; Brivois 124; Ray 236: "The major attraction of Le diable à Paris resides in Gavarni's plates, which are of even greater interest than the 320 woodengravings of his Oeuvres choisies (...). The engraving is superior for the most part, and they are new conceptions, not versions of his lithographs. He limits himself almost entirely to single figures or pairs, evoked with his usual concentration and psychological subtlety."
