Paul Emile Boutigny

Cocorico was a semi-monthly satirical journal of humor, literature and the arts published in Paris from December 1898 until 1902. It was created by Paul Emile Boutigny (1854-1929). The periodical took its name from the French word for the crowing of the Gallic rooster. The crowing cock is sometimes understood as the personification of French chauvinism.

A characteristic of the publication was its support of Art Nouveau, and the magazine is filled with many beautiful and exotic images designed especially for the magazine. The best artists of the time illustrated its pages, most notably: Steinlen, Mucha, De Feure, Cheret and Villon. Also included are many interesting advertisements of posters for sale to collectors, the latest camera equipment, and department stores; which all serve as a sociological compendium of the era.

We present here a bound volume of the magazines from the first issue of
December 1898 through the first number of May 1902.

Fine quarter morocco binding, gilt titles and raised banding to spine, marbled endpapers.
