Joan of Arc is considered de Monvel’s master piece and the original Frence edition was considered a marvel of the printer’s art.  This edition was based on a copy in the Morgan Library.  It tells the story of the Maid of Orleans, from her birth in Domremy to her death at the stake at the hands of the English.  The illustrations are influenced by the medieval illuminated manuscripts
