Reminiscence d'Orient. Turquie Perse et Syrie
Paris: Chez l'Auteur, 30 Rue Des Mathurins, 1939 Text in French. This is a very good copy of this portfolio in green paper-covered boards, containing 16 pages of text and notes and 30 photographic plates and 6 hand-colored watercolor plates. The text and plates generally very good, 2 plates with some foxing. The portfolio has some damp marks to the top corners, otherwise very good. This work appears to be a record of the author's collection of architectural elements and decorative art from his many excursions to the Orient. The photos appear to be of the author's own quarters at 30 Rue des Mathurins. A late work of undoubted "Orientalism", it sets out to create an atmosphere of The Thousand and One Nights. The 6 watercolor plates depict a man and a woman in Persian costume, inside the sumptuous dwelling, in romantic, but very chaste encounters. Absolutely charming work sure to delight admirers of d'Allemagne. Folio, 13" high X 10" wide. Quite rare among d'Allemagne's works. . Decorative Cloth. Very Good.
