Description

Fine copy of this uncommon work on Russian folk art, the best examples of which were gathered across Russia and presented at this exhibition just before the outbreak of WWI. A result of the success of the event, this richly illustrated production was actually the only catalogue published – as the first 1902 Exhibition didn’t have any, and no more were held afterwards. It includes essays and many plates on the individual branches represented, such as weaving, gold-embroidery, lace and jewelry.

Description

Quarto (37 x 28.5 cm). Decorated half-title printed in red and gold, portrait frontispiece protected by tissue guard, title, V, [2] pp., 88 photographic plates with captions in Russian and French, some original printed tissue guards, [1], 85 pp. Original pictorial wrappers bound in later red cloth, patterned endpapers, flat spine lettered and decorated in gilt.

Provenance: Yu. Bakhmatev (ink inscr. to upper pastedown); Private American collection.
