Paris: Breger & Lang, 1912. First Edition. Wraps. Very Good. Lovely hat catalogue with equestrian flavor. All the vignette illustrations atop each page depict horses, riders, coachmen, and the like, and many of the hats are styled for equestrians in one way or another -- this is long before the equestrian protective helmet! 4to, 27.5 by 18 cm. 20 pp., including wraps. Eight of the leaves, or 16 pages, are on a glossy stock, and these all show two or three photographed samples, and feature the headpiece two-toned evocative scene drawn by Jobbé-Duval, who was a prolific French book illustrator and commercial artist and the son of a noted painter. The Delion firm dated back to 1847. This catalogue was issued in conjunction with its opening its third store, this one on the Boulevard St.-Germain. Light soiling of the cover. Small edge ding insignificantly affecting leaves. Perhaps a touch of finger soiling.
