Lovely salesman's sample book of sacramental vestment textiles from the French firm of G. Bochard, which operated in St. Etienne from the late 19th century until the mid 20th. The company focused primarily on embroidered silks, not only for vestments but also table cloths, banners, book braids, and the like. Examples in this volume include swatches of numerous priestly vestments: alb, cincture, maniple, stole, chasuble, cope, dalmatic, surplice, and cotta represented in brightly-colored woven silks as well as embroidered and tapestry fabrics ó many with stock notes, and other related penciled marginalia (in French). A beautiful production.
