Original hardcover 1901 design distribution catalog for the famed La Maison Moderne gallery (Rus des Petits-Champs, Paris). Cover designed by Paul Follot and endpapers with repetitive La Maison Moderne insignia by G. Lemmen. Detailed decorative pages by Vogler and type by Emil Grasset. Catalog sections are demarcated by decorative illustrations by theme (e.g., leather goods, ceramics, jewelry, etc.) by Felix Vallotton. This original gallery copy is doubly special for the remaining original pinned (nailed) Georges Bans business card on the introductory page, who was the manager of the gallery at the time. A treasure trove of Art Nouveau source material!
