About this Item

Quarto. Unpaginated. [37] leaves. Original stiff wrappers. Preliminary text leaf pasted on inside of front cover. This rare and striking trade catalog from Ludwig Oppenheimer, a manufacturer of mosaic tiles and parquet flooring in Manchester, contains 17 mounted 4 7/8 x 6" (image 2 6/8 x 2 6/8") parquetry pattern samples reproduced in chromolithography, and 20 bound in leaves (9 6/8 x 7 6/8") featuring 33 parquetry pattern samples in various sizes (also reproduced in chromolithography). The catalog was designed as a self mailer, and the hand-written address of James Russell*, an architect living in Glasgow to whom it had been sent, and three cancelled stamps are still on the back cover. Moderate shelf wear and minor and sporadic closed tears along edges of wrappers. Previous owner's stamp (Architect James Russell) on upper margin of text leaf, and at verso of each plate. Wrappers in overall good, interior in good+ to very good, samples in near fine to fine condition. *James Russell was a pupil of Robert Scott's Glasgow Architectural Academy and invented the mortsafe in 1815 at what must have been an early age. He was, at least for a time, architect and surveyor to Sir John Maxwell's Pollok estate, laying out 'the landscape garden feuing plan' of Kinninghouse in 1833. Russell practised from Three Mile House, Paisley Road, Govan. In 1845 letters for him were to be left at 19 New Bridge Street, Glasgow but by 1850 he had taken an office at 51 Miller Street, Glasgow. This was soon given up, Russell practising thereafter solely from Three Mile House (as indicated by the address written on the back cover of the trade catalog). In the 'Architects Engineers and Building Trades Directory' 1868, he is described as having compiled a work on 'Ancient Ecclesiastical Architecture, embracing Glasgow Cathedral and Paisley Abbey'.
