1925 · Paris
Paris: Maison Murat, 1925. 60p. plus firm's add-ons; the profuse illustrations are printed in sepia on cream tint-blocks with a terminal section showing certain paraphernalia (cigaret cases, cigar scissors, pocket knives, sewing kits) in blue on the same tint. Softbound, a 9.5x12.5 inch oblong folder fastened with a decorative cord (intact and presentable), cover titling embossed gilt, rubricated titlepage, the numerous plates all in good order. Externally, the item's overlapping margins are somewhat shelfworn with a bit of dust-soil, while the interior has developed one flaw: expect an extended adhesion-scar betwixt the titlepage and cover's verso, and an attendendant tear next the worst of the scar in the gutter's margin. Was a leaf removed? we don't know, but it doesn't look like it). A good copy. Laid in is a typed promotional letter on Murat letterhead.
