Jean-Baptiste Isabey (Nancy, 11 April 1767 - Paris, 18 April 1855) was a French portrait artist and miniaturist. He is also called "Le peintre des rois". He was one of the masters of the genre of miniatures and had great success in the time of Napoleon I and on the Congress of Vienna in 1814/1815.
Joséphine de Beauharnais and Napoleon Bonaparte were his next patrons. Louis Philippe was his next patron. Napoleon III made him a Commander of the Légion d'Honneur. (Source: Wikipedia)
He also experimented as one of the first French artists with lithography. This series of lithographs is one of his earliest examples (see Benezit V, p. 730).

    You had indicated that you would collect the books yourself. Afterwards you asked for them to be shipped and to pay the sipping cost separately. I sent you mails with shipping cost and bank account number to pay into. You never paid the shipping cost. I offered to return the cost of the books to you and asked for your bank account number. You did not reply to this. In good faith I again offer to return to you the cost of the books if you mail me your bank account details. The other option is that I send you the books and you pay me the shipping costs.
    Please mail me at to let me know how we can solve this.
  • Fantastic box, well packed
