Illustrations by Fortuné Méaulle for Alphabet des Insectes by Leon Becker 

(France, 1883)

The scans come from the Bibliothèque nationale de France.

A previously-covered Cotsen exhibit says about the book:

Insects stand in for people in this highly fanciful French alphabet. In addition to weight-lifting or parading down the boulevard, they file into church, ice skate, duel, dance, sail, paint, serenade a lover or invite her to dance, and, of course, improve their minds reading.

Hetzel was one of the most important publishers of children’s books in late nineteenth-century France, whose publications were distinguished by their handsome gold-stamped cloth bindings and excellent illustrations.

You can see covers Meaulle (fr.wiki) did for Le Petit Journal here.
