Item #53785 HANS HOLBEIN THE YOUNGER: A Critical Monograph. Ford Madox Ford, Ford Madox Hueffer.


London/ New York: Duckworth & Co./E. P. Dutton, [1905]. First edition. Holbien (c.?1497 - 1543) was a German and Swiss artist and printmaker who worked in a Northern Renaissance style [Wiki]. Like his earlier artists' studies, this one is published in the "Popular Library of Art" series (later printing copies are in the "Masters of Painting" series). Original red cloth with top edge gilt, and gilt design and lettering on front and spine. Harvey [A15] calls for a limp green-leather binding and notes a copy in red cloth. Based on publisher's ads, we believe the leather was a special binding and that the standard issue cloth (and presumably paper) boards were available in various colors. Spine slightly faded otherwise near fine. From the collection of Ford scholar Thomas C. Moser with his penciled signature to the front endpaper.
