    Originally published in Paris in 1888, Auguste Racinet's L'Ornement polychrome was intended as a practical source book for the decorative artist and as an historical survey that explained, by means of brief introductions and visual examples, the origins of styles. The compilation of over 1,500 examples ranges from ancient Egyptian art to 19th century design and includes decorative motifs of Classical Greek, Chinese, Indian and Arabic art, among many other exotic sources, as well as western European ornament.
