Décoration Intérieure / Menuiserie/ d' Art/ Ebénisterie/Tapisserie.
Paris J. Boison & E. Bardin ca. 1900. A promotional brochure and trade catalogue for this Parisian interior decoration firm. In an introductory note apparently addressed to "l'architecte", Boison acknowledges the turn of the century trend toward homogenous decors which he deems best served by the hand of the architect who designed the building in question. He puts his furnishing and decoration firm at the service of the architect. Shown are standard features of interiors executed in various styles with costs indicated. Some interiors are of shops or restaurants. Addresses are provided. Rare; no copies located in OCLC , nor in CCfr. Stapled pamphlet, 18 x 12.7 cm., 32 unnumbered pp. with 13 full page illustrations on rectos.
Original printed paper covers with decorative title design on upper cover, some light pencil drawing on lower cover which also prints illustrations of medals in gold and silver acquired in 1900, 1878 and 1889; some pencil doodles in margin of one plate. A very good copy.
