Sartel, O. du: LA PORCELAINE DE CHINE - ORIGINES, FABRICATION, DECORS ET MARQUES. La Porcelaine de Chine en Europe, Classement Chronologique, Imitations..... Paris, 1881. iii, 230 pp. 120 b/w text-figures, engraved portrait, 18 chromolithographs, 14 plates. 37x29 cm. Loose in original cloth portfolio with gilt lettering.
One of the earliest accounts in a Western language on Chinese ceramics. Most of the many pieces illustrated were in the author's collection. 18 delightful chromolithographs plus 14 black-and-white plates from photographs. Numerous appealing text-figures from engravings. As issued - loose in the original cloth portfolio with ties - a nice period object. Foxing throughout and some water damage to the back cover, thus the much lower than usual price. In French.
