An "encyclopedia" of bronze art works. The entirety of L'Art Pour Tous was published as a series, and this is a compilation of several issues together, though not in any specific order. All but one of the examples are from between 1861 and 1876. The final one is from 1892. Entries are generally written in French, Old German, and English. List of plates in the front implies far more than are bound in and excludes some that are present. There are 80 solid plates, and we have circled in pencil the plates that DO appear. Included are urns, statuary, door knockers, samovars, boxes, incense burners, candelabras, reliefs, and more. Beautiful illustrations.
