Livre d'Or de la Broderie. Alphabets - Monogrammes - Festons.

Lyon: Léon Sézanne, (c. 1870). Oblong quarto. 32pp. A rich collection of embroidery patterns, including alphabets and fashionable monograms produced by the company founded by Henri Cartier-Bresson's father. The designs herein hint at the sleekness of twentieth-century styles, with the sharp linework of Art Deco. Given the fragility of the highly acidic paper used, and the intended use of this work, surviving examples are rare. Unsurprisingly, there are no copies recorded in OCLC. Preserved in cloth-backed marbled boards with original upper wrapper affixed to cover. Shallow vertical creasing to pages and scarce rubbing to corners, else very good. Item #30123
