About This Item

First edition of all 79 issues, complete with 186 hand-coloured pochoir engravings after fashion plates by some of the greatest artists of the era.

Number 742 of only 1250 sets on Holland paper (out of a total edition of 1279).

Complete set of this stylish periodical that was published from June 1912 to August 1914, ending with the outbreak of the First World War.

An homage to the title and format of La Mésangère's periodical of 100 years before, the new "Journal des Dames et des Modes" was edited by "T.A." or Tommaso Antongini, personal secretary and biographer of Italian poet Gabriele D'Annunzio.

With prose by Henri Duvernois, Marcel Boulenger and Paul Margueritte, poems by Jean Cocteau, Anna de Noailles, Lucie Delarue-Mardrus, and others.

The fine pochoir fashion plates by famous Belle Epoque illustrators including Georges Barbier, Léon Bakst, Bernard Boutet de Monvel, Umberto Brunelleschi, H. Robert Dammy, Paul Iribe, Charles Martin, Fernand Siméon, etc.

All 186 plates present, numbered 1-184 with two unnumbered plates. One sample of marbled fabric.

Volumes 1 to 3 bound in full leather with raised bands, red labels and gilt spines, wraps bound in at rear.

Volume 4 with each issue in original wrappers, inserted loosely into half-yearly original large blue wraps.

Leather bindings slighted scuffed and original wrappers faded and fragile, with some split along the fold. Damage to top 5mm of spine, front hinge detached and book block splitting in Vol. 3.

All text pages and hand-colored plates in clean and fresh condition with fine hand-color.

Very rare to find complete with all plates, text and wrappers (advertisements in Vol. 4 only).

Currently, shipping to US by Fed-Ex only (Japan Post option not available).
