    BARBIER, GEORGE.
    La Guirlande des Mois.
    Stock Code 99717
    Paris, Meynial, 1917
    £3,750
    A fine, complete set of this celebrated periodical, which, although published in a small format due to wartime austerity, is nevertheless extremely luxurious. The early volumes of these beautiful little annual almanacs often include images of men in military uniform. In addition to the pochoir illustrations, Barbier contributed articles from 1918 to 1921 on such topics as the Ballets Russes, epigrams, opera, and the pleasures of love. The fashions depicted show a radical post-war shift in style with the adoption of shorter and fuller skirts, backless gowns, and fabrics that incorporated more risqué elements of the tango.

    Description
    First editions, 5 vols, 12mo (12.3 x 8.4 cm); 31 colour pochoir lithograph plates, illustrations in the text; original pictorial satin over Bodoni boards with pictorial dust-wrappers, original decorated slipcases, some age-toning to dust wrappers but otherwise very attractive copies.
