MANSION (Leon Larue).

MANSION (Leon Larue).

Letters upon the Art of Miniature Painting.

Lithographed frontispiece, folding hand-coloured palette plate by Hullmandel.

First Edition. xi, [i], 180 pp. Bound in the original blue boards, uncut. (New paper backstrip and new endleaves).
London: [by S. and R. Bentley for] R. Ackermann, [1822].

The half-title has been torn and strengthened at the inner margin and the frontispiece has some foxing, but it is a good copy. The folding plate, showing a palette of twelve colours, gives the equivalent French and English names for each - for example, "Brun No.4" becomes "Mixture of Vandyke Brown with Burnt Siena".
