[FREDILLO.] Le modèle chez le peintre amateur. [France: ca. 1880s.]

Folio (200 x 140 mm). 10 hand-coloured plates (170 x 120 mm to the plate mark). (Minor wear in some margins, first plate lightly yellowed in the margin.) Mounted on stubs in contemporary pink cloth-backed marbled boards, spine with morocco label and two ornaments stamped in gilt, top edge gilt, blue marbled endpapers (corners rubbed, light wear to the label). Provenance: remnants of bookplate on the front pastedown.

A RARE SUITE OF HAND-COLOURED PLATES BY FREDILLO, complete with all the plates. The copy shown in the 1999 exhibition 'Jardi d'Eros' in Barcelona lacked four plates. WorldCat locates no copy in any public institution; apparently not in the Bibliothèque nationale de France; AE and ABPC record no copy at auction. Jardi d'Eros, p.270.
