Description: Limited texts are by Beaumont Newhall & Mary Steichen Calderone and are signed by both authors. Illustrated with 12 gorgeous large photogravures, loose as issued, with tissue guards, in a folding two-piece natural silk folio case. United States: Aperture, 1981. Limited edition, number 315 of 500 printed on heavy Rives BFK paper. Plates are all fine but the outer slipcase is somewhat dust-soiled and has a small 1 inch ink stain on rear cover; inner cloth slipcase is clean but the white board sleeve holding plates is cracked at edges. Fine in a very good case.

Comments: The images were made by means of the Talbot-klic photogravure process. 11 of the plates were made using the dust-grain technique and one plate using a specially prepared screen. The plates were hand-pulled at Atelier de Taille Douce in Switzerland. Prospectus laid-in.

As an Interior Decorator I am on the constant lookout for source material for my clients. I recently completed a Studio pied a terre in the Georgian period for Mr. David Brown at Lincoln Center. That is, we were almost finished with only the artwork to be designed and purchased. I have a passion for antique architectural prints and I can't believe that I didn't know about Argosy Books. After all Designers don't really like to share their finds with others. I was in a cab, looking out the window as we passed by Argosy Books and noticed a fine selection of framed prints hanging in the window. I had found my oasis! I now head first to Argosy for all my print work and framing. What a treasure and a real lifesaver for design business! Thanks eternal. - Aaron James
