Broderies Populaires Espagnoles
Publisher: Ernst Henri, Paris, no date.
This is a portfolio of an assortment of examples of popular Spanish embroideries over the centuries. The 30 plates, mounted on grey card, reproduce examples of regional patterns, motifs, and symbols, rich in variety and composition.
The portfolio is undated but circa the 1920s. The language is French.
The original maroon cloth boards are in good condition, with slight fading, a couple of sticker marks to the front and general handling wear.
There is a very small round sticker from a private library and a short ink inscription to the top of the front paste-down.
The coloured plates are all clean, bright and in near fine condition. The grey card is in very good condition, with slight minor yellowing and bumping to the edges and elsewhere in part.
A lovely copy.
