Magasin des Demoiselles – Volume 5 (the 5th year of publication) – covering from October 1848 until September 1849. – This is the typical run for this fashion periodical – all of their subscriptions from this period ran from October until September
Language – French
Lovely book which appear to be complete – containing all of the coloured and black and white engravings – 13 fashion engravings and 1 black and white. I have not notices any text pages missing.
Binding – half calf green leather with green paper boards (floral) The hinges are worn and rubbed, but still holding securely. The binding is a bit loose with some coloured plates being detached.
Again – the book is from the early years of this periodical – complete with all the plates – one fashion plate was issued typically every month with extra plates showcasing accessories. In this case the extra accessory plates were issued in December and April – both showcasing lovely children’s clothing.
