COLLECTION OF EIGHT LOVELY ORIGINAL WATERCOLORS OF INDIAN COSTUME

[WAHLEN, Auguste—pseudonym for LOUMYER, Jean Françios Nicolas]. Costume Drawings. No place: no publisher, circa late 19th-century. Slim quarto, modern red paper boards, green morocco cover label. $1600.

Collection of eight lovely original watercolor paintings of Indian costume, seven likely copied from Whalen's mid-19th-century encyclopedia of costume from around the world, Moeurs, Usages, et Costumes.

Whalen completed his comprehensive survey of world culture and costume with the collaboration of J. J. Van Beveren; seven of these eight paintings (Plates 2-8) are found in Whalen's published survey, and are most likely copied faithfully after Whalen's published designs.

Fine condition, watercolors vivid.
