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 Volume: Pp. 349. Hardcover, bound in the original publisher's full buckram, green lettering embossed on cover and spine, spine somewhat faded, neat ownership signature to half-title. II. Plate Volume: 24 plates, numbered I-XXIII including I bis, printed in collotype, bound in the original plain wrappers. In fine condition. Excellent set, with a very crisp set of plates. ~ 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.
