1 Beaumarchais. Aquarelles de H. [Henri] Montassier Le Mariage de Figaro, ou La Folle Journee
Paris Henry Babou 1927 Limited First Edition Half Morocco over decorated paper, with original w Very Good 
No. 51 of 525, this being one of 50 copies on papier verge blanc de Hollande, with pochoir plates also on Hollande, and thus a more special copy than the vast majority of the limitation. Bound by Donnelley of Chicago. The watercolors of Montassier were printed with a pochoir process by the master of pochoir, Jean Saude. The pochoir plates and headers (at the beginning of each of the five acts) dazzle with their lucious color. 4to. (29 by 23 cm, 11.5 by 9 inches.) 139, [2] pp. With ten pochoir color plates. Henri Montassier (1880 - 1946) painted in a wide range of genres and was an active contributor to such well-known periodicals as "Le Sourire", "L'Illustration" and "La Baionnette". Jean Saude is unquestionably better known today, in part because he wrote the most authoritative treatise on the pochoir process when its popularity was on the rise. The morocco is rubbed along the joints and is worn in the lower corners, with a few tiny spots of wear elsewhere along the edge. The paper pasted onto the boards features a design of a Centaur, pipes, an urn, each bordered by vines. The paper is sunned or faded somewhat, particularly along the edges. Still, the binding is attractive as a single unit and in all its components. Within, a few pages have light foxing. Otherwise, the paper is luxuriant and impressive. Some offsetting from the pochoirs onto the opposite pages.
