1994 The Art of Perfume Discovering and Collecting Perfume Bottles
What Our Customers Say...
Colour Plates, Early Edition, Illustrated, Pleasing Copy, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper
A fundamental work for any collector or admirer of perfume bottles, Christie Mayer Lefkowith's expertise as a collector and dealer for over thirty years clearly translates to this text, providing a comprehensive overview of "perfume presentation", a phrase coined by the author to describe a 'perfume's complete package'; the name, label, box and flacon. The work includes details of bottle designs from influential glass makers such as Lalique and Baccarat Collated, complete with 370 illustrations, 220 of which are in colour, and a helpful 'A-Z of Perfume'. Complete with original dustwrapper.
Bound in black cloth with gilt publishers emblem to front board. In the original dustwrapper. Externally, excellent with just minor handling marks to front and rear board. Dustwrapper, excellent with a small chip to the head of spine. Spotting to verso of dustwrapper, not visible to recto. Internally, firmly bound. Pages very bright and clean throughout.
