Wright, Agnes Foster, Floors, Furniture and Color, Lancaster, PA, Armstrong Cork Company, Linoleum Division, 1924, first edition, 4to (10.75" x 7.75"), HB, dark navy paper boards w/ gilt decoration and blue titles, VG / none. Small repair to damaged board.

48 pp. Profusely illustrated (8 in color) with domestic interiors typical of the period. Advertising piece from Armstrong with advice on interior decorating with a bit of history about linoleum. The first paragraph reads..."I am sure that all of us are grateful for the present-day use of good, honest, strong color in the decoration of the home. Color has, indeed, come into its rightful place as an expression of beauty. Perhaps this is due to the interior decorator, who, with the assurance that training and experience give her, has led the way in using color generously and satisfactorily."
