Hardcover. Very Good. 4to, 25 x 20.5 cm.  pp. Two original scrapbooks (1930 and 1931) bound in original art deco boards (extremities rubbed) in the form of desk calendars from the famous Parisian department store Bon Marché. The 1930 scrapbook completely filled with hundreds of pasted-in newspaper advice columns regarding household repairs, furniture, upholstery, beauty, health, cleaning, etc., with at least one article on care for books (Entretien des Livres, by Françoise Rieux), and another on setting up your wine cave. With the label Conseils Pratiques added by a previous owner to the spine. The 1931 scrapbook is in the same format, also full, and contains hundreds of newspaper clippings regarding cuisine, cooking, food, storage, and other advice. With the label La Cuisine on the spine. The 1931 book includes a pristine folding map of Paris and an original measuring tape (for dress sizes, we assume) affixed to the rear pastedown. (Inventory #: D14685)
