Description
11 pp. Illustrated with 52 coloured lithographs with contemporary hand-colouring. Oblong 8vo., bound in publisher's quarter black morocco and blind-stamped cloth over boards. Marbled end papers. Interesting trade catalogue with hand-coloured plates of numerous French interior decorations. The plates showcase taste in Paris and throughout France at the end of the nineteenth century. There are some elaborate depictions of fully decorated rooms, as well as fabrics for window curtains, fabrics for bed canopies, etc. The 11 pages of text ('Tarif des Ornements') describe the contents of each of the lithographs and includes the prices for the materials pictured and described. Some extensive drawing / scribblings (mostly child like) on reverse of plates and at times on some of the plates themselves. Minor chaffing to binding extremities, else good.
