PERCIER, C. & P.F.L. FONTAINE. - Recueil de Decorations Interieures, comprenant tout ce qui a rapport a l'ameublement.

Paris, the Authors & Didot 1812. folio, uncut in original boards, modern straight grain morocco spine. [4],43pp, 72 engraved plates. Scattered spotting; a rather good copy. ¶ Issued in parts from 1801 (has anyone ever seen a set?) This was the apotheosis of the Empire style, by its inventors. The elegant outline plates display interiors and furniture done for Napoleon at the Tuileries, and for clients throughout Europe. But the descriptions make clear that manufacture was by Parisian craftsmen.
