Ravel and Nicolas Laugier: Daphnis et Chloé

Here is the stunning “Dafnis y Cloe” (“Daphnis et Chloé”) by Jean Nicolas Laugier. Siglo XIX. A gorgeously perfected bit of neoclassical in print form. I am not sure if this is additionally a woodcut, if it is it might be the finest I have ever seen. I never tire of the attempted perfection of the neoclassical.
