Comments: These 70 proof plates from artist Henry Le Riche (1868-1944) are meant to accompany a limited edition version of Claude Ferrere's (1876-1957) "Les Civilises," which won the Goncourt Price in 1905. Featuring multiple states of many of the illustrations, this dossier provides an in-depth and unique look into the artist's process as well as turn-of-the-century Indochina. Intricate lines combine with a muted yet varied color palate to portray the many scenes described in the book, including Hanoi, Singapore, brothels, opium dens, and harbor towns. Henry le Rich was a French painter, sculptor, illustrator and designer who taught engraving at the Academy of Fine Arts in Paris.

I want to thank you for your excellent service. I telephoned to inquire about the availability of a book this past Wednesday morning. Michele informed me it was available and took my order at about 11 AM EST. The next day when I got home from work, I was astounded to find that the book had been delivered in the early afternoon -- less than 30 hours after the order. Now, I know that UPS deserves some credit, but such fast delivery would not have occurred if Michele (and perhaps others) had not worked extremely efficiently. The book was well packed and fully meets my expectations, and Michele even got my name right! You have demonstrated a level of service I hope all merchants would meet. Thanks again. - Guy Hasegawa
