Description: Extraits du Grande Ouvrage L'Art Arabe de Prisse d'Avesnes [sic]. Choisis, classes et arranges par les editeurs. Half title, title, and 4pp list Beautifully illustrated with 110 numbered plates (actually 98 as the 12 double-page plates are counted as two), 87 of which are vivid chromolithographs. Folio, leather backed mottled boards with gilt-lettered spine (boards rubbed ; inner front hinge repaired; interior quite clean). Paris: J. Savoy & Cie, 1885. A very good copy.

Comments: Scarce first printing this work which is culled from the larger four volume work L'Art Arabe, originally published in 1877. The fine plates depict Islamic ornamental designs as seen on mosaics, carpets, ceramics, glass, murals, and even entire rooms.
