Binding by Georges Cretté who favored geometric Art Deco designs. One of the hallmarks of his style was his faultless use of gold fillets, which earned him the nickname "mare des filets." It is copy 75 from an edition of 110, inscribed to Cretté by the illustrator and publisher, François-Louis Schmied (1873–1941).
