No. 191, July 2, 1898. Two half-page illustrations by FV.
Two (2) complete issues, both containing contemporary printed images of artwork by Felix Vallotton.
One is a splendid color cover, the second issue containing two half page black & white images. Both contain other color images, great period ads, articles, etc.
Both issues remain clean, overall in near VG condition. Paper for both is well age toned as always due to wood-based paper stock used for this periodical during this era, similar to newsprint and comic books of the 1890-1930 era.
Issues remain clean, some short edge spits, paper brittle, some pages detached due to dried glue, etc.
Issue measures: 12 1/8" H X 9 1/4" W.
