First edition. Folio. 323x250mm. pp. 83 leaves of thick cream paper. 3 leaves with title page, index and contents pasted on, 80 leaves on each of which is pasted a plate illustrating seven hundred different types of lamps and lighting from early Christian examples from the first century to the nineteenth century. Blue half cloth, white vellum covered boards. Illustrated and lettered paper labels on upper cover and spine. Small tear to top edge of the label on the upper cover. Some marking to vellum and bumping to head and foot of spine but overall in very good condition and internally near fine. Loosely inserted are two double sided leaves advertising books by L. Roger-Miles on the decorative arts. And there are two booklets (one of 12pp and the other of 48pp) advertising books on art and architectural history published by Librairie G Baranger. A very nice example of an early twentieth century French reference work on the decorative arts.
