Boussod: Valadon et Cie, Editeurs, 1890.
Bound by Birkenruth in full maroon morocco with five raised bands to spine and decorative gilt tooling to front board and spine. Gilt turn-ins and marbled endpapers. Top edge gilt. Bound by Johanna Birkenruth, with her stamp. A rather plain and unimpressive binding for Birkenruth, and this must be a very early example of her work, predating her later association with Frank Karslakeís exhibition of bindings by women binders in 1897 and the founding of the Guild of Women Bookbinders in 1898. Boards slightly edgeworn and marked. Ink inscription to first blank. Scattered foxing. Color frontispiece portrait engraving. With 28 additional engravings and photographic plates. Text in French. Very Good condition. (#3576).
