It is a sequel to his Code Civil: Livre Premier, Des Personnes (1925) and Code Penal: Commentaires Images (c. 1940). Hemard, a prolific artist, illustrator, designer and author, is best-known for his humorously illustrated editions of serious non-fiction books. The Code General was issued in several forms. The present copy is from a trade edition of 1,000 copies. It was also issued in a limited edition of 800 numbered copies, the first 145 with an original sheet of text illustrations and a sheet of their original sketches. There is also a signed and numbered edition of 160 printed on Arches paper (papier velin), an edition of 40 non-commercial copies intended for friends and associates (hors commerce) and 60 portfolios of the images alone.
