Five loose gatherings, with coloured frontispiece, and forty b/w plates (line drawings of several jewelry specimens per plate) in a mustard-cream chemise, the whole within a decorative heavyx board portfolio with green cloth spine and ties; a fine, crisp copy. No limitation statement.
This is a seminal work with excellent plates illustrating the traditional jewelry of Morocco, and explanatory text for each plate, by a noted scholar of regional folklore. His detailed and precise drawings are highly regarded, and are cited by academics and museums, and are used as inspiration by jewelers, costumers and designers.
