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.


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.
