Jersey, Philip Falle, 1847

A superb series of large format lithographs of Jersey. John le Capelain (1812-1848) who came to be known as Jean, was born, in London, the son of Jerseyman, Samuel Le Capelain (1785-1850), and Elizabeth Anne Pinckney (1782-1851), from England.

Today Le Capelain is probably best remembered for a series of watercolours of Jersey which were presented by the States of Jersey to Queen Victoria in commemoration of her visit to the island in September 1846. Bound in red morocco they were presented to the Queen by four States members the following year. The volume contained 16 etchings of Jersey scenes and six of the visit itself.
They were subsequently turned into lithographs and published by Philip Falle in the present work. Queen Victoria chose three of the originals to be included in her personal souvenir album, which recorded her travels in pictures. The three scenes chosen depict various aspects of St Aubin's Bay, which she found so inspiring.

First edition; large folio (650 x 480 mm. approx.); additional pictorial lithograph title, 25 lithographs, subscribers' list at end, final 2 plates with neat marginal repairs not affecting image; original red morocco-backed cloth boards, gilt vignette to upper copy, neat repairs to cover edges, lightly worn, otherwise a very good copy.

Abbey (Scenery), 553.
