Description: Paris, J.E. Ogier, éditeur, 1870. modern half cloth in-folio portfolio. 50 x 35 cm. Title page + printed index + 75 albumine photographs mounted on boards. (complete). Each photograph with the holograph signature of Prignot and with the rubber stamp of the photographer '' Photographie des Sciences & des Arts Alexandre Martin, 47 rue de Seine Paris.''. The two printed leaves are a bit soiled and damaged at the edges ( no loss of text). Some of the boards with the tipped on photographs have creases at the corners. On the whole the complete collection of 75 original photographs is in good condition. This is a very early specimen of the use of photography to illustrate interior design. Admittently the ecclectic designs are now very outdated. But this publication remains an interesting example in the history of the use of photography to illustrate art and architecture designs. .
