By: N/A

Price: $28.00

Publisher: Paris,

Seller ID: 20585


Lovely, postally unused collection of 20 vintage postcards in their original green box which is bordered in gilt with black printing to face only. There is no date, but they appear to be from the 1930's. We also believe this to be true because they were purchased as part of a larger collection amassed by a relative of the former's owner's during the early 1930's while touring France. Many items had dates from the early 30's. All cards and box are very good with no errant... View more info

Edition: 1st Edtiion (English)

These books are exquisite nestled in a bright red slipcase. The boards are white and the jackets are colorful and beautiful with the works of Matisse. The only fault is a couple tears to top edge of the spine. It was taped on both back and front, but I placed it in a mylar cover which helped quite a bit. The second volume has a few tiny tears at the same place, but it was not taped. I used a bit of archival tape on the back only. The books and the slipcase are clean and ... View more info

There's a lot of reasons to love this exhibition catalog. First of all, the text is in ENGLISH. Secondly, its an exhibition catalog replete with color and sepia art printed on coated paper. Then there's the fact that it's brand new and has pretty two-tone blue maps printed inside both covers. What's remarkable though is the art depicting fireworks from 1644 which had pyrotechnics for the King's Feast on Place de Palais in August, 1644 to the marriage of Napoleon I and th...
