Le Bon Genre 100 Plates Gazette Du Bon Genre French Art Deco Book Pochoir 1922
France: Brentano's, 1922. Binding is meh. Listen, we all know someone is going to break this for the plates. The fact that the binding is as is only makes that less painful for the buyer. Good afternoon from Congers, NY. I'm at heart a book guy. I found some very good books in a nearby estate this week, and I'm happy to share them here with my eBay buddies. Happy bidding & happy eBaying. "Le Bon Genre", "A Selection of 100 plates of the famous "Gazette Du Bon Genre" by G. Barbier, Benito, R. Bonfils, P. Brissaud, J.-G. Domergue, Drian, Iacovleff, G.

Later in 2009, a copy did $3800 (estimate $2000-3000, B.P. 24%, $4712). Finally, in 2008, a copy did $4000 against an estimate of $4000 - 6000, buyer premium 22.5%, total to buyer, $4900.

Last copy I can find was sold 11 years ago and I would guess this is among the class of items that have appreciated in the last decade. At my asking price, we are at $35 / plate, as opposed to almost $50 a plat … [Click Below for Full Description]
