Voyage De Ma Colonne. Napoleon et Sem

[Paris: early 20th century]. Folio. 20 pages of illustrations, many highlighted in white and other colours. Unbound. Sheet size: 20 x 13 inches.

The noble emperor in many settings, mostly shopping including at the tailor, in a Rolls Royce, and looking at girls in 1920s costumes.

Georges Goursat moved to Paris in about 1900 and adopted the professional name 'SEM' in honour of the 19th-century illustrator "Cham" (Amédée de Noé), and during his long and very successful working life recorded Paris and the French upper classes during four decades - a speciality was to produce images which are somewhere between straight portraits and outright caricature. He was also capable of more straightforward illustration, satirical work as well as producing a great deal of purely commercial work.
