A very fine copy of "Les Bars," an album of ten original etchings by the master Lobel-Riche, representing fashionable women in various Parisian social settings. This album, part of a series, was commissioned according to his editor; to express "the sumptuous and picturesque lifestyle of the times in which the essentially French qualities of charm and elegance dominate." The result is an ensemble of ten charming scenes of pre-war Paris, in which the women's costumes and attitudes are rendered with lively precision. This copy is exceptionally rare as it is one of six collaborator's copies with colored etchings, as well as eleven smaller additional etchings; on vellum. Bookseller Inventory #
