G. De Malherbe, Paris, 1895. First edition. Folio. Laid in, individuals sheets in the original printed grey wrappers. 12 chromotypographed plates, one for each month, before type with month only printed, designed for the 1896 calendar of the Parisian department store La Belle JardiniËre. Sheets measure 17 x 241 mm; 12 1/2x9 1/2 inches. In the early 1890s Grasset began experimenting with a new form of printing called chromotypography, an early form of photolithography invented by his friend, Firmin Gillot. This calendar was printed in "Gillotage," a version of chromotypography where the plates are engraved on wood and printed on vellum. Near fine. [Attributes: First Edition]
