Good. Item #7473
Monte Carlo: André Sauret Éditions du Livre, 1951. First Thus in English. Quarto; 101pp. Thirty-two full-page, full-color poster reproductions plus 6 full-page depictions of the color layers Toulouse-Lautrec used in creating his posters.
Full-color wrappers over stiched heavy cream paper gatherings. Stitching somewhat loose, but all pages remain bound together in wrapper. Small splotch of red paint on the bottom corner of the front of the cover, and tiny bit of it barely brushed on the edges of the corner of a few pages. Wrapper shows slight soiling on the back and is torn at the bottom of the spine. Light water damage only visible on inside on front and back covers and final blank page.
A handsome conspectus remarkable for reproducing not only the widely known posters of demi-monde clubs and restaurants, but also those for more frankly commercial "daytime" enterprises: American printing houses; French bicycle chains; lurid popular fiction.
Édouard Julien was director of the museum at Albi, birthplace of Toulouse-Lautrec.
