Ephemera from The Drawing Room of Newport

Item # B 1. A rare folio of photo engravings from the "L'Art Decoratif aux Salons de 1906": The Decorative Arts Salon of 1906. Size: app. 7.75" x 11.75" (page size, outer folio a little larger. Condition: there are about 105 pages and there must be several missing, there are 154 pages listed in the index, the outer folio covers are stained and fragile, the existing pages (this is a loose leaf assembly of pages) have minor tears and edge staining, but for the most part the images are clean. It seems that two organizations were listed: Society des Artistes Francais, Societe Nationale des Beaux-Arts. The Editor was Armand Guerinet. Pictured are works by (among others): Gaston Bigard, Paul-Emile Brandt, Boutet de Monvel, Gaston, Charlet, Mile Flore Herbin, Gaston Charlet, Maurice Delanney, Auguste Fourain, Paul Hesbert, R. Petit, Victor Lhuer, A. Quenard, E. Quentin, Mile S. Rabant, L.C. Tiffany, Taxile Doat, Michel Cazin, Camille Gueyton, etc. This folio came out of a Newport Rhode Island private library and was probably purchased at the time of its printing for that library here in Newport. The pages are suitable for copying and would make a wonderful reprint for designers and decorative arts educators. Most of the plates are of jewelry. There are only about 10 Tiffany items pictured. The plates are one sided. Price: $750.00.
