About this Item

Three volumes, folio (about 14 x 20 inches); black cloth, handwritten paper label on front board ("Dessins divers," "Gekaufte Dessins," "Dessins Loyot"). "Divers" and "Gekaufte" each contain about 100 (or more) lace designs, drawn in pencil on onion skin in a range of sizes, and tipped onto stubs. Sometimes with color or heightened in white or gold, many of them folding out to display long "panoramas" of pattern. "Loyot" contains 250+ designs, ranging in size from 1 large (nearly 14 x 20 inches) to 10 smaller drawings tipped to the recto and verso of each of its 60 leaves. Drawn in pencil, frequently colored and/or heightenned in gold or white. Showcasing a great variety of designs, from elaborate floral and swirling ivy, to geometric patterns that flirt with becoming art deco, and patterns with an Oriental or Moroccan influence. Some chipping and wrinkling to some of the designs on onion skin that were placed toward the very front and very back of "Divers" and "Gekaufte," particularly where panoramas were folded back incorrectly. "Loyot" is in fine condition. A wonderful collection. Displays beautifully. Bookseller Inventory # D10946
