Upper board of the first volume has a stain, boards of both volumes are rubbed along edges with fraying to backstrip, minor foxing to endpapers; internally bright, very good. Colorful sales trade catalogues for wallpaper, with a vast compilation of styles from pre-World War II Germany. The catalogue was likely from a large distributor, whose initials are stamped on upper boards, “I. Z. & Co.

The second volume has a large variety of both colors and mediums, with floral, geometric, embossed, some with Art Deco, and Bauhaus aesthetic. (Item Id: 108275)
