[Paris] Osmont and Pinsonniere: ca.1839.

This unnumbered volume has 52 hand coloured plates (11" x 8.5") and the hand coloured title page tells us that Pinsonnire has by this time succeeded Osmont as editor of these pattern books. Tiny margin tears to title page. The last 2 unnumbered plates of ornaments each has a margin cut away. Landscape format recently rebound in plain grey paper covered boards with tan calf spine, new endpapers. This volume is from a group of 7 notebooks issued between about 1810 -1840 by 3 publishers about whom little is known other than their surnames d'Hallavant Osmont (a Parisian upholsterer) and Pinsonniere. This pattern book has engraved designs for beds, canopies and window drapes - all richly hand coloured designs reflecting the way styles were rapidly changing over a short period of time from classicism to romanticism and to the revival of eighteenth century styles.
