Paris: Librairie Centrale des Beaux-Arts.
Folio with title-page, 49 of 50 color loose collotype plates after photographs. In original cloth-backed illustrated boards, with stains, chips and wear, three green cloth ties, present but worn. Some light scuffs to plates, corner of plate 8 is chipped lower left. Plate 36 missing.
Beautiful arrangements of flowers, leaves, vines, and grasses, printed in unusual colors. Chrysanthemums, begonias, poppies, ferns and many more flowers are depicted. The floral designs include ornamental friezes, carpets, among other creative designs. The dossier is attributed to Verneuil in pencil but no date or name printed on the folio. Maurice Pillard Verneuil (1869-1942), was a designer who is known for his influential textile book on the subject of Art Deco design; 'Etoffes et Tapis Etrangers' which was produced for the Paris Art Deco exhibition in 1925. Le Decor Floral is hard to find and special.
