First Edition. 1.2 kg; 192 pages, last seven pages blank. 1101 items are listed, where possible with credit to the artist or maker, with a price range indicated of the auctioneer's expectations. The major pieces have an accompanying illustration in colour. Colour illustrated dust jacket. Blue place marker ribbon, which some enterprising person has carefully unwoven for almost a complete length, leaving lots of single threads. Otherwise in very good condition. This auction represented the breaking up of the private collection of a pair of antique dealers who died within 12 months of each other. Their collection featured the best of everything. Delicate, fine, elegant. These words described mostly the arts, and statuary that were offered for sale. My guess is that most of the items that were sold had not been seen for 20 years, and probably will not resurface for sale in Melbourne for at least that long again. Size: 4to 9¾" - 12" tall.

British Museum Publications, London, 1977. First Edition
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. Illustrator: Rubens. First Edition. 600 g; 176 pages, in colour illustrated wraparound softcover binding. The book appears slightly age, but has no damage as such to report. Illustrated with numerous black-and-white photographs, 5 full-page plates, and 3 other pages of colour reproductions. Chronology, list of works referred to in abbreviated form, and the catalogue itself. Fortunately the key to an understanding of these processes is to be found on the subject of the 1977 exhibition, Rubens drawings and oil sketches. These works of his, because of the spontaneity of their execution, are much more appealing to us finished paintings. As such they will no doubt be much more readily acceptable to those who not only want a pleasurable introduction to Rubens, but would also like to begin to see how his mind works. -- Page 9 Size: 4to 9¾" - 12" tall.

The major pieces have an accompanying illustration in colour. Colour illustrated dust jacket. Blue place marker ribbon. In very good condition. This auction represented the breaking up of the private collection of a pair of antique dealers who died within 12 months of each other. Their collection featured the best of everything. Delicate, fine, elegant. These words described mostly the arts, and statuary that were offered for sale. My guess is that most of the items that were sold had not been seen for 20 years, and probably will not resurface for sale in Melbourne for at least that long again. Size: 4to 9¾" - 12" tall.

Herbert Jenkins, London, 1969. First Edition
 Hardcover Hardcover. Good Condition (ex-library)/Good. First Edition. Previous owner purchased the book from a library and has blacked out any library stamp, the rear paste down has been glued to the rear end page, and the dust jacket was price clipped, and then re-stickered by the publisher with a new price. The previous owner has also used marking pen to imitate a tint on the bottom edge of the text block, probably to cover over a library stamp. Apart from this damage, the book internally is clean and bright. Illustrated with colour plates, black-and-white photographs, and hand drawn copies of the marks and tools, the book is invaluable in settling the argument on whether one company was naughty, and made their "identification marks" intentionally similar to another company stop no matter that one company was in Wales, and the other in England.

"This book, a companion volume to Hugh Honour's Cabinet Makers and Furniture Designers, consists of 50 studies of Goldsmiths and silversmiths of 10 nations and 11 centuries. -- by investigating the lives of individuals, the author has been able to indicate the social standing of craftsmen in different countries and periods, showing how the goldsmith gradually lost his mediaeval position as the most highly esteemed of all artists and sank to the level of an artisan. He suggests how craftsmen were affected by economic pressure, especially in the early Renaissance, when several who began their careers as Goldsmiths Became, and achieved more lasting famous painters or sculptors." -- front fold over blurb.

The major pieces have an accompanying illustration in colour. Colour illustrated dust jacket. Blue place marker ribbon. In very good condition. This auction represented the breaking up of the private collection of a pair of antique dealers who died within 12 months of each other. Their collection featured the best of everything. Delicate, fine, elegant. These words described mostly the arts, and statuary that were offered for sale. My guess is that most of the items that were sold had not been seen for 20 years, and probably will not resurface for sale in Melbourne for at least that long again. Size: 4to 9¾" - 12" tall.

Carney, Clive,
Oxford, Melbourne, 1950. First Edition
 Hardcover (Original Cloth) Hardcover (Original Cloth). Good/No Dust Jacket. Illustrator: June Carney. First Edition. 1.5 kg; XVI, 360 pages, indexed. The book is illustrated with numerous parts, and full page photographs in colour and, black-and-white as well as detailed line drawings, tables, charts etc. Each section of the book cavers an aspect of interior design, and offers a glossary, as well as an expository question and answer section. The book is written primarily for the amateurs so that it is desirable to create interest in everything that comes within the category of home furnishings. Grace and beauty are expressed in many forms, and fine wares and not the rightful possessions of any class or creed; but ignorance of what may be accomplished with limited resources is alone responsible for much distasteful furnishing. -- from the introduction, page 1. Pages 173 onwards are probably more of interest to the modern day antique dealer what with the hallmarks, the pottery marks on monograms, and depictions of the various styles of furniture through history.
