Tendres Stocks: The Complete Etchings


Chas Laborde (1886-1941), Tendres Stocks: The Complete Etchings, c. 1924, etching, engraving, colored etching proofs before publication of the book. A suite of 13 impressions in black and white, and 13 in color; 26 in all; impressions printed before the book edition of Tendres Stocks by Paul Morand, published by Emile-Paul Freres, Paris, 1924.

This set of 13 etchings in color, and 13 in black in white, was published in a small edition of only 24, on Holland paper (many with a fleur de lys watermark). The book containing the etchings in color was published in an edition of 550. The published book is widely available; we have not encountered another set of the proofs before publication on the market.

In very good condition, the full sheets with deckle edges, impressions of varying sizes, the sheets 10 x 7 inches.

Additional illustrations are, of course, available on request.
