L’ECOLIER DECORATEUR. Application Du Programme Officielle Du 27, Juillet, 1909

Paris: Monrocq Freres, (1909). Six "cahiers" for primary school students with progressive exercises in decorative composition in colour. Each of the 6 cahiers contains 5 full page plates of color printed decoration studies in the contemporary Art Nouveau style. Each plate offered for study shows drawings by Chevry of applications of floral and other natural forms to decorative objects, such as a ldamp shade, decorative pillow cover, a vase, a rug, a piece of jewelry, a letter formed of flower and stem. The young student is encouraged to take inspiration and use natural forms in his/her own design. Surely a contribution toward the spread of the Art Nouveau spirit into myriad aspects of French decoration before the first world war. Scarce. We locate no other copy of the complete series in OCLC, COPAC or KVK. One copy of a single cahier only at Watson Library, Metropolitan Museum. Make a necklace in a jasmine design 8vo (22 x 17.2 cm); 60 unnumbered pp. with 6 decorative colour titles and 5 colour plates of designs; text to final page of each cahier.

The six cahiers have been bound together in plain flexible cloth covers with a duplicate of the paper wrappers mounted on front and rear; with short cracks in lower front rear and joints; covers gently rubbed at extremities, some minor and faded old stains to exterior paste downs; internally very good.
