Illustrated throughout with many plates and vignette illustrations.

Dufy also acquired a reputation as an illustrator and as a commercial artist. He changed the face of local fashion and fabric design with his work for Paul Poiret. He painted murals for public buildings; he also produced a huge number of tapestries and ceramic designs. His plates appear in books by Guillaume Apollinaire, Stphane Mallarm, and Andr Gide. Condition: In a half-morocco binding. Externally smart, with just a couple of marks. Internally, firmly bound. Front hinge slightly strained.
