Paris: Le Moniteur des Dames et des Demoiselles, 1867-1868. First edition. Hardcover. Folio. 368pp. Contemporary half calf over blue cloth, with gold lettering and tooling on spine. Marbled endpapers. Striking collection of twelve bound issues of "Le Moniteur des Dames et des Demoiselles" for the period 1867-1868. "Le Moniteur des Dames et des Demoiselles" was one of the most popular fashion magazines published for French women during the second half of the 19th century. This collection presents a striking array of women’s fashions from the 1867-1868 season. Each of the twelve issues contains a hand-colored plate on which appear two or three ladies, often accompanied by an elegantly clad child, all dressed in magnificent costumes appropriate for various seasons and specific occasions: a day in the country, a casual promenade, visiting and receiving guests, weddings, evening receptions, balls, and other social events. The striking plates are after drawings by Jules David. Unfortunately, the May 1868 issue is lacking its plate. All other plates are present. Binding rubbed along edges with abrasion to leather. Closed tear at tail of spine. Minor and sporadic age-toning, foxing and creasing throughout. Text in French. Binding in overall fair, interior in good to good+ condition. g- to g. Item #36967
