Cream cardstock portfolio inside blue-grey portfolio-style slipcase, contents loose as issued; 90 pp. Some sunning to slipcase, excellent overall condition.

He created and designed houses, furniture, tapestries, gardens, and art objects in a neo-classical and baroque-influenced style he created which he named the "Louis XVII style".
