Catalogue of the Sassoon Chinese Ivories, Prospectus
Catalogue of the Sassoon Chinese Ivories, Prospectus. 1950.
This is the pre-sale prospectus, advertising the publication of:
Catalogue of the Sassoon Chinese Ivories, in Three Volumes, compiled by S E Lucas.
Published by Country Life Ltd: London and Charles Scribner's Sons: New York.
Outer card covers contain 14 high quality sheets with details of this magnificent 3 volume set. The prospectus is printed on the same hand-made paper as per the final publication. The original bound-in perforated order form is additionally still present, advising that the set would cost 100 Guineas, plus postage (equivalent to around £4,000 in today's money).
Very good overall. The cover has some handwritten pen and pencil annotations and is a little age-worn. The annotations look like reference library markings. Text is nice and clean throughout.
390mm high x 286mm wide.
