Wonderful 1816 antique French deckled Edge Red Paste Paper books "Dictionnaire Encyclopedique De La Noblesse De France. Enclopedic dictionary of The Nobility of France. The COMPLETE set. Tome 1 & 2. You are purchasing the SET of both volumes. These antique books measure approximately 5.25” x 8.25” with about 525 pages each. Paste papers are one of the earliest methods used to decorate paper. I haven’t made any in a long while and now I feel the urge to start again after seeing these colors. OMG are these deckled edge books just FABULOUS or what! These do not contain illustrations.
They are in fantastic condition given their age and they are getting harder and harder to find. These are originals from France. These are not reproductions. Keep each one as it is if you are a collector or take it apart for decoupage, altered art, mixed media and so much more. I have also use these books for wallpaper. One book can be used for so much.
PLEASE NOTE THIS IS AN ANTIQUE AND NOT A REPRODUCTION SO THERE IS WEAR AND TEAR COMMENSURATE WITH AGE.
