Sheet size: 257 x 175 mm
Image size: 102 x 102 mm
Edition: 46 – Unsigned
Wood engraving, printed by Léon Pichon in several colours on Japon à la forme. There were 46 suites of Colin's colour engravings on Japon and 96 on Chine (though if our copy is typical, those on Chine are usually in black only). This is an out-of-series copy, no. XII of 20 hors-commerce copies, this one specially printed for M. Roger Meyer. As this copy has a suite in colour on Japon and in black-and-white on Chine, it is possible that the true edition is 66. Only one suite, on Chine, was signed, especially for the Musée Carnavalet in Paris. Sold with a copy of the justification page, in initialled by the publisher, Manuel Bruker. Besides the suites, there were 396 copies of the book, 46 on Japon, the rest on Arches. Condition: Fine.
