About this Item

No. 51 of 525, this being one of 50 copies on papier verge blanc de Hollande, with pochoir plates also on Hollande, and thus a more special copy than the vast majority of the limitation. Bound by Donnelley of Chicago. The watercolors of Montassier were printed with a pochoir process by the master of pochoir, Jean Saude. The pochoir plates and headers (at the beginning of each of the five acts) dazzle with their lucious color. 4to. (29 by 23 cm, 11.5 by 9 inches.) 139, [2] pp. With ten pochoir color plates. Henri Montassier (1880 - 1946) painted in a wide range of genres and was an active contributor to such well-known periodicals as "Le Sourire", "L'Illustration" and "La Baionnette". Jean Saude is unquestionably better known today, in part because he wrote the most authoritative treatise on the pochoir process when its popularity was on the rise. The morocco is rubbed along the joints and is worn in the lower corners, with a few tiny spots of wear elsewhere along the edge. The paper pasted onto the boards features a design of a Centaur, pipes, an urn, each bordered by vines. The paper is sunned or faded somewhat, particularly along the edges. Still, the binding is attractive as a single unit and in all its components. Within, a few pages have light foxing. Otherwise, the paper is luxuriant and impressive. Some offsetting from the pochoirs onto the opposite pages. Half Morocco over decorated paper, with original wraps bound in. Bookseller Inventory # 002208

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.
