L'Ornement Polychrome: Cent Planches en Couleurs or et Argent Contenant Environ 2,000 Motifs de Tous les Styles Art Ancien et Asiatique Moyen Age Renaissance, XVIIe et XVIIIe Siecle; Recueil Historique et Pratique (Volume 1, First Series)
Paris: Librairie de Firmin Didot Freres, 1870. Hardbound. Good+, some soiling or age toning to many sheets, images are unaffected but do show slight muting on occassion. A solid, tight volume with a tiny ownership stamp on the rear of each plate which in no way bleeds through to the image.. Old red library buckram, art school bookplate, 100 polychrome (chromolithograph) color plates and accompanying pages of text. Text is in French. This volume contains a 60-page general introduction, followed by 100 plates, includes descriptive pages between the plates. We see examples and illustrations of ornamental designs on porcelain, tapestries, enamels, silks, jewellery, illuminated manuscripts, stained glass, jewelry, furniture, etc. Overall a stunning volume.
