Binding   Hardcover

Book Condition   Very Good

Publisher   Paris Daydou Fils. Imprimerie Lafontaine & Fils 1891

Seller ID   005631

Folio, 43 by 32 cm. 48 hand-colored plates, one double paged, followed by nine double paged plates, on thin paper, of the same fashions shown in black and white. Paris-Toilette was a fashion magazine issued monthly which would appear to have been heavily oriented towards such color plates, but what we have here is not issues as such but rather a collection of the plates issued by the magazine during the Spring months, and perhaps a little earlier, of 1891. The magazine itself is hard to come by, with the only copies located at the Met, the Danish National Library and Penn State, according to OCLC First Search. (Nothing comes up at the BNF when we search "Paris Toilette Daydou", strangely enough.) The images show somewhat generic looking beautiful women of the era in elaborate, gorgeous gowns. Joints repaired. Fraying and wear to cloth, and moderate wear overall. A few small closed tears to the color plates, and substantial repair to one of the black and white double plates.
