(TRADE CATALOGUE)  DAMMAN & WASHER & CIE.  FABRICANTS DE PARQUETS RICHES & ORDINAIRES.                                                  

Brussels: (cicra 1900). Oblong 4to. Printed wrappers. (32) pages, 29 designs on 15 chromolithographic plates.

Rare trade catalogue, while OCLC does record three other catalogues by this firm (each with single copies) our catalogue is not listed by them.  A fine copy of an attractive catalogue of parquet floor designs, illustrating different types of decorative floor and contrasting borders; loosely inserted is a printed price list and a roneo sheet trumpeting the honors of the company which had exhibited variously in London, Vienna, Philadelphia, Melbourne, Paris, and also at the World's Columbian Exposition 1893 in Chicago, receiving commendations from most and winning the "grand prix" at the Paris show.  Very good.
