'Pan Annuaire du Luxe a Paris' An.1928 Paul Poiret Foundateur
1920. Truly one of the great 'arts decoratifs' biblio rarities of the 20th C! This unique publication represented an advertising directory offering a panorama of exquisite French taste during the art deco period. Featuring 116 (many in colour) advert plates specially designed, at the request of Paul Poiret, by the greatest artists and illustrators of the time including 'Sem' Cocteau et al. The programme of Pan was to group in a flawless presentation album the maisons de grand classe which glamorously showcased the luxury 'industries' in Paris in the 1920s This is a superb connoisseur's copy in the signature mustard yellow cloth boards with silver foil lettering that we acquired at The New York Antiquarian Book Fair on Park Avenue.
