Alphabets Pour les Ecritures Batarde, Coulee, et Ronde... Ecrit par Duplessy, Maitre d'Ecriture, le 14 Novembre 1784
1784. Very Good+. Portfolio, cloth-backed marbled paper over boards (approx. 13-by-20 inches), with 3 ribbon closures. Contains 11 loose leaves (11.25-by-17.25 inches), each with handwritten text and decorations, with hand-colored flourishes in pink and green. Very pretty specimens, with illustrated birds perched on the letters. Leaves a little wrinkled and dust-soiled along the edges; some faint foxing here and there; but overall quite nice, suitable for display. Portfolio a little worn; scuffed along the edges.
