First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good Condition. Item #046586
Wide format folio in later but early half leather over marbled boards, worn at corners, hinges rubbed, edges gilt. Modest foxing, occasional finger soiling and wear to plate edges, very good overall. 30 plates - 4 preliminary plates and 26 showing the museum contents, room by room. A groundbreaking work of museum cataloging - a smaller edition more useful as a gallery guide was produced as few years later. Size: Folio. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.
