About this Item

N.d., circa 1880. With twelve mounted plates of printed silk featuring pre-Raphaelite young girls. We see a girl creating bubbles, lolling on a sofa, sitting with a feathered fan under an orange tree, fussing with her hair, gazing at fish in a bowl, striking a pose under a lemon tree, fishing in a pool, nude with a shell to her ear, nude gazing perhaps at butterflies, and nude playing a flute. The imagery evokes the boudoir, perhaps a harem, and there is most definitely a light erotic aura being created. The artist is also making allusions to allegorical paintings and the depiction of the gods. Notwithstanding the frisson of sexuality, few would be offended by the images. The silk lends softness to the already mostly pale palette. The genre of printed silk, and the collection of the images as such, is extremely scarce. The black morocco binding is rubbed along the joints and worn especially in the top corners. Within the leaves, all of card, are sturdy, sound and clean. Bookseller Inventory # 001992

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
