[Paris] (Revue de La Mesangere) 1816 - 1818 Six octavo (4-3/4" x 7-3/4") volumes bound in contemporary calf-backed decorated boards with contrasting red and black gilt-lettered spine labels and gilt spine decorations. A full three years of this scarce publication which began in 1797 and lasted until 1839. Present are all of the issues for the period of 1816 - 1818 but one (Issue 63 from 1818) and a total of 247 hand-colored fashion plates of predominantly but not exclusively women, numbered from 1533 to 1784. The 4 plates not accounted for are 1668 and 1739, both the second plate in a single issue, and plates 1773 and 1774 from the missing issue. Most of the plates feature people dressed in fashions of the time, but there are also plates of individual items, usually hats, and several to a plate. University library bookplate on front pastedowns and ink stamps on title pages and bottom edge of bulked text, but in general the text is clean and all of the plates are unmarked. Covers firm, with slight loss of leather from small area on spine where tape was removed. Plates generally clean and fresh; binding Very Good
