This is a spectacular find -- gorgeous graphic art and nine tipped-in art works from the exhibition. Of those artists the one I recognized was C.A. Willimvosky who was an important Impressionist of the 20th century. He died in 1971. The show was huge -- 696 works in these categories: applied art, architecture, graphic arts, painting, and sculpture. The catalog also includes a narrative entitled The Manuscript on Gray Charcoal Paper by Thomas Wood Stevens who appears to have corrected errors of fact in a submission by an unknown sender. The catalog has some issues -- edge wear, wear to both ends of spine with small bits of paper loss, re-stapling by a former owner and a small piece of archival tape to top of spine and to reverse side of top corners to keep them from snapping off. The inside of the catalog is lovely -- very clean, no writing, heavy, beautiful paper and deckled edges. Scarce item.
