Folio, 6 hand coloured lithographed plates by Regnier and Bettanier, after Bassaget, who always signed as Numa, original cream coloured printed boards. Although other works by Numa are principally related to fancy dress costume and European women’s costume, these have an additional dimension, showing as they do the traditional dances of a variety of nationalities, and the costumes of the women participating, including the Fandango and the Tarantella.

Coloured plates in order:

1. La Farendole.
2. Le Fandago.
3. La Tarentelle.
4. La Fuga.
5. Le Bollero.
