Ce n'est pas une édition bilingue. Texte en français uniquement, pas en anglais. This is not a bilingual edition. Text in French only, not in English. A lovely copy of an exceptionally scarce book. Undated but presumed second half of 19th century. Picard offered fine bronze and other metalwork objects for church use. Published by Picard, 47 rue de Sèvres, Paris. Printed by Sarazin, rue Gît-le-Cur, Paris. 10.75 x 8.5 inches. Originally issued in paper wrappers. Now in half leather with dark brown calf spine and corners, all with blind-stamped design of wavy lines, and with marbled paper hardboards in tones of orange and bronze. Hubbed spine, the spine with gilt-stamped title. Unbumped spine head and tail, and with sharp corners. The binding in first-rate condition and with scarcely any rubbing. The gorgeous binding is a work of art in its own right. Heavy-duty mustard-gold pastedowns and endpapers. Text block tightly bound in. 40 numbered pages of text plus 202 B&W illustrations on unnumbered pages. Preliminaries with tidewater markings, especially in the upper corners. A few fingering marks and other light blemishes to the pages. Else clean internally, and with minimal page waviness apparent. A Very Good copy in impressive condition for its age. Rare trade catalogue from the French manufacturer of elaborate and finely crafted metalwork, Henri Picard. Featured are chandeliers, candelabres, lampes, lustres, tabernacles, encensoires, and more. No copies of this catalogue are listed in OCLC/WorldCat.
