First and only edition, uncommon, OCLC locates copies at BnF, Oxford, Tel Aviv, University of California, Swiss National Library, and Kunstbibliothek – Staatliche Museen zu Berlin. Interesting study of the morphology of Arab numerals with reference to calligraphy, illustrated with a series of elegant proportional studies lithographed by Villain, and hand-coloured.

Quarto. Original blue paper wraps, typographic title label to the upper panel. 19 lithographed plates, 10 of them with hand-colour. A little rubbed, some splitting at the spine, light browning, a very good copy.
