[PAINT]. THOS. PARSONS & SONS LTD. LONDON. - A Tint Book Of Historical Colours. Suitable For Decorative Work. [cover title; the title page merely reads "Historical Colours"].
London 1954. Large octavo publisher's patterned cloth; 74pp, 136 mounted colour chips. Mildly used. ¶ Fifth edition - six editions apparently appeared between 1934 and 1961 but (you won't hear me say this when I have a first edition to sell) there isn't any difference in quality or content between them. An interesting, useful sample book of ostensibly historic colours, from the Egyptians on, matched as closely as possible by the paint manufactures. It includes oriental, Etruscan, Pompeian, Moorish, Wedgwood, Aubusson, Adam Brothers and many more types and periods.AUD 225.00 [Appr.: EURO 159.75 US$ 172.39 | £UK 138 | JP¥ 19172] Book number 9867
