[TRADE CATALOGUE OF LUXURY FURS].

Bound in sophisticated yellow embossed paper boards by Devauchelle with printed label on upper cover within a pretty decorated frame in colour. Original printed covers bound in. First and only edition of this stunning fashion catalogue. Revillon Frères, originally founded as Maison Givelet in 1723, was a famous French fur and luxury goods company. It was purchased by Louis-Victor Revillon in 1839, successfully developed with establishment of new fur boutiques in London, New York and Montreal in the 1860s. Their success encouraged the creation of a profitable fur industry in Europe and North America. In the early 1900s, French fashion designers such as Madame Isidore Paquin and Paul Poiret introduced stylish fur garments in their regular fashion collections. Mme Paquin had developed a method of processing fur so that it would be softer and more comfortable to wear. Her fur coats and other fur decorated clothing were in great demand by the socially prominent women of that period (Hansen, 1956, Costume cavalcade, p. 100). A superb specimen of an extraordinary work.

MALMÃÁN, PER:
Mönster för marmormålning (Patterns of faux marbling painting). Part one (all published). Stockholm, Gustaf Chelius, 1895.
Large folio. (39 x 54 cm). Pp. (4). With ten lithographed plates of different kinds of marbles. Text leaves with some marginal tears and some plates with a few spots in margins and some plates with tears at the outer margins but overall a very good copy. Original half cloth on grey boards, cotton ties, lightly rubbed. Title in German ("Marmormalereien") printed in black on upper cover. (We have not been able to find any other copy with German titled wrappers). First and only edition of this scarce book, the first of its kind in Sweden. Per Malm√©n (1852-1926) studied at the Acad√©mie Bertillion in Paris in the 1870s and became a prominent faux marbling painter. According to rumours, he conducted several marbleizing works at the Louvre but it has not been proven mainly because the artists did not sign their works at that time. This impressive manual was used at the Technical School in Stockholm where Malm√©n taught for many years. The plates depict several kinds of marbles titled: Vert de Mer; Jaune de Sienne; Chateau-Landon, Rance; St. Anne; Marbre de Kolm√•rden, Granit; Portor; Bleu Fleurl, Rance and; Breche Violette. The text explains methods of creating the various stone patterns. Ref.: Fredrik Th√
