Hemard presents the official text of the French Tax Code with witty, often racy illustrations, colored (au pochoir) by E. Charpentier. 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 first 145 copies of the 800-copy edition also included an original sheet of text illustrations and a sheet of their original sketches. It was also issued in an unnumbered trade edition of a thousand copies. 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.
