Discovering Lost Films of Georges Méliès in Fin-De-Siècle Flip Books (1896-1901)
by Thierry Lecointe and Pascal Fouché and Robert Byrne




Overview -

No living person has seen the earliest films of pioneering cinema magician, Georges M li s. All that remain are his catalogs and a few archival images. The 2013 discovery of a flip book manufactured by an obscure Parisian bimbelotier, L on Beaulieu, promised a glimpse of an unseen M li s film. This idea inspired years of investigation by researcher Thierry Lecointe - a trail that led him to collector and historian Pascal Fouch and his amazing collection of more than 10,000 flip books, including 27 produced by the mysterious Beaulieu. The conclusions of Lecointe's ground- breaking research are astonishing. L on Beaulieu's primitive flip books were comprised of images appropriated from early films, many of them lost treasures. Early films by M li s, but also Gaumont, Skladanowsky and Path suddenly came to life after more than a century This meticulously researched volume reveals how these miraculous discoveries were made and features more than 500 previously unpublished images that you won't have seen anywhere else.
