Paris: the society, 1904. Unpaginated, between sixty and eighty pages plus two fascicles bound in, featuring many artists' renderings of zinc roofing sheets in a variety of styles, mouldings and fastenings ditto. Find a dozen or so plates that show finished work on elaborate older buildings. Leaves measure 10.5x9 inches and are the principal content of this item, which is a hard-cover folder with plain printed external titling. One bound-in booklet, "Peintures au Blanc de Zinc", measures 7.5x5 inches and consists of 16p; the other insert is same size as main contents and features perforated zinc doo-dads with illustrations in silhouette. Banner headings boast of prizes won at industrial expositions. Folder leaves are a bit shaken with age and handling, but further handling remains easy enough, and the clothbacked folder is sound if not beautiful. Laid in find a lengthy holograph letter from "Le Sous-Directeur General" whose signature we cannot read; it is addressed to M.Millard, architecte, and is dated 1905 (runs at least 350 words).
