Text in French. A catalogue of type specimens offered by the Deberny firm, mainly pictures and engravings. Includes municipal coats of arms, commercial symbols, medals. Maps of France and regions therein at end of text. The title page mentions the firm's participation in a competition in 1900, and the map of France shows boundaries before the treaty of 1919, thus dating this work. The Deberny firm traces its origins to the early 19th century, including a brief connection with the French writer Honoré de Balzac. Label on front cover lightly soiled.
