Paris: Rouam, January 18. 1886 to Janu. Folio. Loose as issued. 12 parts all with printed and decorated wrsppers. 48 color plates, several heightened in gold. Separate leaf listing the contents of each plate in 6 languages. Colored gravures printed by Gillot( Gillot types on papier du Chine) and backed onto heavier mounts. The designs are fairly specific relating to textiles, wall paper, bookbindinds, tea sets, glass vases, jewelry. Uncommon in any form and quite scarce in original parts in the elaborate publisher's case. Particularly useful for the publisher's advertisements, the precise dating and the 12 extra designs, one for each wrappers. " This album heralds the movement via Japanisme from the sentimental glug of past pastiches to Art Nouveau". Some foxing to the margins of some plates. Publieher's case shows a little wear. .
