ORIGINAL EDITION and complete collection of the 18 issues of the magazine The Album, published from June 1901 to November 1902. 

Director Lucien Puech's ambition was to entrust "to each of the Masters of the Day, an entire Album, where they would have absolute freedom to do whatever they wanted". because "every artist has works in his studio that he only shows to intimate friends". Alongside these works and sketches which might never have left the artists' studios without this publication", The Album publishes mostly "dwhole pages of the genre known to the Masters of Caricature"

Eighteen issues were published over a year and a half, each devoted to a different artist: Albert Guilllaume, Ferdinand Bac, Charles Huard, Henri Gerbault, Caran d'Ache, Léandre, Job, Benjamin Rabier, Abel Faivre, Albert Robida, Steilen, Hermann Paul, Jules Grün, Balluriau, Willette, Lucien Métivet and Forain. The latest issue is devoted to The Youth PleiadTestevuide, Kupka, Wely ,Delaw, Villon, Devambez, G. Redon, cap, Guydo, Wely...
