About This Item

Péra-Constantinople: Librairie Raymond Two volumes. Printed in Prague by M. Schulz 1922 (?) and 1924. Première Partie: Vieilles Faiences Turques en Asie-Mineure et a Constantinople. Deuxième Partie: Fragments d'Architecture Religieuse et Civile. The first part is a portfolio bound with cloth spine and green and gold lithographed boards with a Turkish design on both sides. Waterstain to top of cloth spine but a lovely copy. Decorative endpapers and flaps with arabesques in blue, green and gold. Eleven pages of introductory material and 39 of 40 plates (lacking plate 4). The second part is a bound volume of matching design, also with a cloth spine and green and gold lithographed boards with Turkish designs and decorative endpapers. Splendid chromolithograph title page and dedication page to the Honorable Charles R. Crane, former Ambassador to China, in honor of his protection of Turkish decorative arts. Illustrated text and sixty gorgeous color plates (some double-page) of portals, windows, iron work, facades, etc. of minarets, mausoleums and mosques. Included are the prospectus with order sheets, copies of correspondence relating to publication and a descriptive sheet for Part I which includes an announcement of Part II. It is rare to find the two parts together; some major references refer only to Part II as Part I was published earlier. Creswell 445. Atabey 1015. Illustrations can be found on my website by clicking on Catalogue 31 (item 64).. Decorated Portfolios. About Fine. Folio.
