Stunning antique embroidery book - French, dating from c.1910 - featuring Art Noveau designs
A very rare volume
** Please read note below re. condition before purchasing **

D. M. C. Library
Published by Th. de Dillmont, Mulhouse, France
An English-language publication

Undated but obviously an early edition, possibly a First Edition. Probably dates from c.1910

Hardback with pictorial covers. Small format- approx. 8" x 5.5" (approx. 20cm x 14cm)
Features charted embroidery designs Comprises 12 pages of text (introduction and instructions), 32 beautiful colour plates and 32 gridded 'tracings' that correspond with the colour plates

The colour plates are stunning - it has proved difficult to select a small number here. All are Art Noveau-inspired, featuring flowers and foliage in the main (but also birds, butterflies, dragonflies, peacock feathers etc)

I have omitted a photograph of the cover in favour of showing more content but if you would like to see a photo of the cover prior to purchase please feel free to contact me

CONDITION - PLEASE READ: the cover has sustained considerable damage and the back cover is entirely LOOSE. The front cover has a little movement too and there is some slight rubbing/image loss in places. It will need to be handled with care. However, the internal pages are in very good condition. A little age discoloured but they don't appear to have been handled a great deal. The colour plates are bright and clean

A very rare and highly collectible little volume, despite its condition

I offer a combined shipping discount - please refer to 'Shop Policies' for details
Shipping charges are usually estimated (particularly for combined shipping). If I find that I have grossly overestimated the shipping costs (after allowing a small amount for packaging) I will, of course, refund the difference

Any questions (or if you require further photos before deciding whether to purchase), please feel free to ask
