About this Item

N.d., circa 1930. 8vo. 24.5 by 18.5 cm. Unpaginated, 31 leaves, all of a weighty card stock, or over 60 pages, about half with color plates (we count 31, but one can quibble about whether one or two of them so qualify). Eleven of these are non-product illustrations -- attempts to capture concepts or abstractions -- the balance being exquisite depictions of the company's fine perfume bottles. The catalogue exudes an unalloyed dreamy luxury in every respects, as befits high-end perfume marketing. Cassandre, a name adopted by the Ukrainian-born Adolphe Jean-Marie Mouron (1901-1968) -- his parents were French -- was a highly celebrated commercial artist, theatrical designer, magazine illustrator and poster artist. He worked heavily with the prestige printer, Draeger, as well as the couturier Lucien Lelong and others. In time he was awarded the French Legion of Honor. Lelong was a top Parisian couturier from the twenties til his retirement in the late forties. He was himself not a designer but rather relied on a stable of designers, and among his proteges was Christian Dior. As this catalogue also shows, dress designers were branching out into fragrances for a long time; this catalogue predates the creation of Chanel No. 5 by a few years. Light wear to the wraps -- a minor closed tear along the upper joint, and some minor wrinkling or creasing to the cover paper. Otherwise, clean and fresh. Bookseller Inventory # 004987

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.
