by Dumonthier, Ernest
Ch.Massin & Cie., Editeurs/Ancienne Maison Charles Schmid
This is a good hardcover reference copy of this portfolio with text booklet and 80 loose plates. Recently de-accessioned from a public library. The purple and gilt embossed boards are clean and not marked, but the spine is defective, and has been repaired internally. Text in French. Essay and notes to the plates by Dumonthier. These are fabrics that were used to cover furniture. All plates printed in grey or pale green, or light brown. All plates identified as to maker, provenance. The paper is somewhat britlle, the edges are chipped. Still a fantastic collection of textile designs in use in the 17th and 18th centuries in France for the royal commissions. Elephant folio, 18" high X 13" wide.
