Each of the sheets is approximately 49 x 37 cm. They are all in good, clean condition, but some have a little marking / foxing to one edge. A touch of creasing to a couple of corners. All are of an excellent standard, and suitable for framing. The Cooper Union was founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper, in New York in 1858 (according to certificate, 1859 according to their website) and still exists today. The certificate, with an attractive engraved vignette of the Great Hall of the college. It is signed by both the director and the president of the colledge in ink, and has a blind stamped embossed seal It shows that Ledonne was enrolled in the Free Night School, and presumably in an Architecture School (although this topic was called designing). We can find little about Ledonné. A Frenchman, he was in America between 1899 and 1903, and later returned to France and worked as a draughtsman or architect under the architect Eugené Dr Chifflot (Brother of Jules Léon Chifflot).

    . Une belle collection de 7 dessins à l'encre et à l'aquarelle de Ledonné, qui faisaient partie de son dossier pour le certificat "Designing" de la Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art. L'ensemble est accompagné d'un certificat imprimé et gaufré de l'université. Les feuilles comprennent : "Tuscan Order Cap and Entablature" Nov. 1899 ; "Doric Order Pedestal and Base" Nov. 1899 ; "Doric Order Capital and Entablature" Dec. 1899 ; "Ionic Order Capital and Entablature" Jan. 1900 ; "Ionic Order Pedestal and Base" Feb. 1900 ; "Corinthian Order Capital and Entablature" April 1900 ; et une "Study of Corinthian Temple" Jan. 1901. Chaque feuille mesure environ 49 x 37 cm. Elles sont toutes en bon état, propres, mais certaines ont un petit marquage / rousseur sur un bord. Elles sont toutes d'un excellent niveau et peuvent être encadrées. La Cooper Union a été fondée par l'inventeur, l'industriel et le philanthrope Peter Cooper à New York en 1858 (d'après le certificat, 1859 d'après leur site web) et existe toujours aujourd'hui. Le certificat comporte une jolie vignette gravée représentant le grand hall de l'établissement. Il est signé à l'encre par le directeur et le président du collège, et porte un sceau estampé à l'aveugle. Il montre que Ledonné était inscrit à la Free Night School, et vraisemblablement à une école d'architecture (bien que ce sujet ait été appelé designing). Nous n'avons que peu d'informations sur Ledonné. Français, il a séjourné aux États-Unis entre 1899 et 1903, puis est rentré en France et a travaillé comme dessinateur ou architecte sous la direction de l'architecte Eugené Dr Chifflot (frère de Jules Léon Chifflot).

Colophon reads: Somewhere around 110 copies have been printed by your faithful friend & servant Mark McMurray, Canton, New York, Christmas, 2017. It seems there were actually 104 numbered and signed copies. Signed to colophon by Mark McMurray, this is copy 36 of 104. Errata slip laid in.

    In the detailed prospectus McMurray writes: We know the story, we know the characters, but the language of the text offers new rewards with each reading. This edition of Dickens' classic returns to the dark, sleep-deprived angst of the original complete text. Who among us has not experienced sleepless nights, peopled with regrets about past choices made and unmade; unwillingly recalling a thousand hurts bestowed and incurred: a lifetime of karmic wheels sent spinning off through Time.

He says: "Mrs Jenny said your Ladyship complain'd of being cold about the loins - so I have Just stept in with a warm flannel petticoat." She is seated beside a tea-table, and throws up her arms, flinching back in horror; she says: "I have no loins fellow! do you want to make a monster of me?!!" She wears a high-waisted, short-sleeved dress, under which her legs are defined. Her little dog barks at the doctor. A large urn and a small cup (overturned) and saucer, are the only objects on the table." (British Museum online catalogue).

Il dit : "Mme Jenny a dit que Madame se plaignait d'avoir froid aux reins - je viens donc d'apporter un jupon de flanelle chaud." Elle est assise à côté d'une table à thé et lève les bras en arrière, frémissant d'horreur ; elle dit : "Je n'ai pas de reins, mon ami ! Voulez-vous faire de moi un monstre ?!!" Elle porte une robe à taille haute et à manches courtes, sous laquelle ses jambes se dessinent. Son petit chien aboie contre le médecin. Une grande urne et une petite tasse (renversée) avec sa soucoupe sont les seuls objets posés sur la table". (Catalogue en ligne du British Museum).
