Vandier, Jacques.
Le papyrus Jumilhac. I. Text; II. Plates. [TWO VOLUMES].
Paris, Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, N.d. (ca. 1950). Two volumes. Royal quarto. I. Text: Pp. 349. Hardcover, bound in the original publisher's full buckram, green lettering embossed on cover and spine; spine trifle faded, top-edge trifle spotted, signature to half-title. II. Plates: 24 plates, numbered I-XXIII plus I.bis, printed in collotype, bound in the original plain wrappers. In fine condition. Excellent set. ~ First edition. Collotype is one of the most accurate and attractive methods of photomechanical tonal printing processes. Highly skilled and expensive process, it cannot produce more than a limited number of impressions. It has been used for single-sheet prints and luxury portfolios, and since the 1950s has been abandoned by all except a few small specialist firms. [We also offer Philippe Derchain: "L'auteur du Papyrus Jumilhac" (Revue d'Égyptologie, 1990), which might be of interest in this context]. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
Bookseller: Librarium of The Hague [The Hague, Netherlands]
