Gowans's Art Books

£12.99

Product description

Five little paperback books, four dated 1903 and one 1911. They are all from the sequence published by Gowans and Gray. They each have a series of black and white photographs of the work of the particular artist.
No 3: Rembrant
No 4 : Raphael
No 5: Reynolds
No 44: Morland and one unnumbered one on Teniers.

Gowans and Gray paperbacks. All four have seriously tanned covers with severe edge wear. The initial pages are of advertisements. After a series of photographs of paintings - neither the images nor the pages are numbered - there is a catalogue of the photographer, Mr Hans Hanfstaengl - which are available in various sizes at prices ranging from 3shillings to 50 shillings. The blocks of the photographs are reasonably well bound but the attachment to the covers is often scanty and sometimes entirely missing.

An interesting little selection here sold as a group.
