1949 Decorative Art: The Studio Year Book: 1949
What Our Customers Say...
Colour Plates, First Edition, Illustrated
A first edition of this 1949 annual in the publisher's original cloth binding. The Studio Yearbook of Decorative Art was first issued in 1906, as an annual review of the finest examples of contemporary architecture and applied art. It was published under that title until 1925, when it changed its name to Decorative Art, with the subtitle of The Studio Yearbook. This annual encompasses new houses and apartments, interior design including cocktail bars, furniture and furnishings, tableware, decorative ceramics, metalware, glassware and textiles. Profusely illustrated throughout with black and white photographs, and some colour photographs, with an introduction by Robert W. Symonds. 14 pages of advertisements to the rear.
In the publisher's original cloth binding. Externally fairly smart, though faded, particularly to the spine and rear board. Remnants of tape to the pastedowns. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean except for a touch of age toning to the page perimeters.
