CACTÉES... Quelques Conseils d'Angel & Fils (cover title).
Paris: n.d. (ca. 1950). An imaginative and charming advertising booklet promoting cactus collecting and cultivation with drawings printed in colors and hand-lettered text printed in brown ink.

Prices are given for various sizes of cactus, for vases and pots, and for Japanese ornaments used in the tray gardens. Oblong 12mo (22.2 x 18.2 cm); 12 pp., including covers, printed and illustrated in colors.
Original self wraps; a well preserved copy of a fragile item. With printed florist's card laid in listing the 8 commandments of the "cacteophile."
