Art of Books

I went out and purchased few old books, art books or books about art, seven volumes in total. Not sure what the total run is but suffice it to say it’s over a hundred. The ones I bought date from 1903 to 1907 (vols 27&28, 34, 35, 37, 39, 42) and are a compilation of ‘The Studio an Illustrated Magazine OF Fine and Applied Art. ‘The Studio’ is a publication noting the contemporary art and artists at the time of issuing. The books I have cover everything from artists to architects, furniture to sculpture. The images of the artwork is to an extremely high quality and in a number of the books is included several first rate lithographs by well known artists. I include a few images from the volumes I have.
