THREE EARLY FRENCH ESSAYS ON PAPER MARBLING, 1642-1765
by Wolfe, Richard J.
Limited to 310 numbered copies and hand-printed by Henry Morris at his Bird & Bull Press on Umbria handmade paper. Wolfe has translated an unpublished manuscript from Lyon circa 1642, containing the earliest known French marbling recipe, an article from Journal Oeconomique,1758, and an article from the Diderot-D'Alembert Encyclopedie of 1765 into English. The Diderot article is especially interesting as it comments on the practical side of marbling, i.e., how much money could be made. The samples were produced by Wolfe using the instructions in the translated manuals. Included is a four-color sequence showing the various steps taken by Wolfe in producing the Placard pattern.
