Dinet, E[tienne].
Les Fleaux de la Peinture Moyens de les Combattre.

Paris Henri Laurens: 1926.

An expanded version of a book first published in 1904. Etienne Dinet [1861-1929] was a noted Orientalist painter who divided his time between France and Algeria and converted to Islam in 1913. Though of academic background and a fairly prolific author, this is his only work which examine the historical technical details of painting, especially such things as the aspects of colors and their preparation, varnishes, drying agents, crackling, restorations, and related topics.

Hardcover. 6.5"x10", iv + 136 pages, 8 b/w plates. Bound into period quarter leather with marbled boards and endpapers without the original softcovers. Minor soil, covers minimally scuffed, a marginal marks in what appears to be a blue artist's crayon.
