This is the Librairie Floury 1929 publication of Paul Jamot’s “Dunoyer de Segonzac” (247 numbered pages), signed by the artist and recovered by R. René Hirsch, as indicated by his stamp to the bottom border of inside front cover (app. 8″ x 10.25″). This is not one of the numbered copies.
The spine, light brown leather spine which extends about 2.75″ into the boards, has three sets of debossed dark red broken line bands, bordered by silver lines and separated by silver diamond shapes. The outer boards are paper surfaced silver to black geometric shapes. Both the boards and the leather have scuffs and shallow edge wear, but no significant stains or notable tears. The spine is straight. The hinges are securely connected. The inside cover spreads are a highly textured gold-yellow-black blend, with visible surface cracking to the front spread’s gutter, but otherwise in very good condition.
The first two spreads after the inside cover spread are blank. The third spread has a loose de Segonzac reproduction, (possibly Île de France) signed twice – one in small letters at the bottom – presumably an in-page signature, and again, much larger, above. The following half-title spread has a note, in ink, to Madame Arthur Harris, signed by de Segonzac (see photo). There are light stains, all small, to a small number of pages. Almost all pages have no stains.
The binding is secure, but it is exposed in a number of spreads. However, excepting the illustration mentioned above, no pages are loose. There are no stamps (other than the binder’s), or other attachments. There is no writing. There are no page tears or creases. The art is in uniformly fine condition, as is all text. The accompanying photos are accurate reflections of the book conditions.
