Summary
The two typescript leaves are the half title and title page. Between them is an etched portrait bust of Pille, serving as frontispiece; it is printed sanguine and signed: Ad. Lalauze. Following is Pille's drawing of the old book collector, standing in front of a flower bed reading a book. The drawing (sheet 21.5 x 12.5 cm) is pen and ink on tan paper, with some additions in pencil and the pencilled signature "H. Pille" in reverse at lower left. It is mounted on a sheet of heavy gray paper; on the verso of the mounting sheet is a hand written label that reads: No. 92. The following leaf is the final printed image (18.5 x 11 cm), signed H. Pille at lower left, Prunaire sc. at lower right, with printed text "L"Imprimerie en couleur" above the image, the title "Le vieux bibliophile" and "Imp. A. Quantin" below. The following 20 leaves are various working impressions, some with pencilled annotations. Ten with full margins are bound in directly, and ten are trimmed and mounted on leaves of heavy paper. Four of the impressions are printed brown with added hand coloring; three of these concentrate on a single color as labelled in pencil at foot (Rose, Bleu, Jaune), while the fourth combines all three
