Paris: Huquier, nd (1900). Later printing. Hardcover. Folio. Original calf with elaborate gold tooling and gilt lettering on spine. All gilt edges. Marbled endpapers with dentelles. Impressive work divided into 12 parts, each containing 6 plates including an engraved title-page with special subtitle. Compared to the original edition described in the Berlin Ornamentstichsammlung, the present edition has somewhat larger engravings, arranged one to a plate rather than two (except parts 8 and 9 that have 12 plates arranged 2 per page, like the original edition). In this work, there are 2 additional plates not included in the original edition: a portrait of Oppenort and an unnumbered plate showing 3 designs incorporating the letter "B". Some edge wear on binding with slight rubbing on covers, spine edges and along hinges. Top right corner bumped, affecting the top corner of first pages. Text in French. Binding in overall very good, interior in near fine condition. Tight copy in a spectacular binding. vg. Item #23474

Price: $650.00
