London. Very Good. [1897]. Scarce. Blind ruled straight grained maroon morocco with gilt title and decorations to front cover. Some wear to head and tail of spine. All edges gilt. White moire pastedowns and endpapers. Inscribed "Edwin + May/from/Henry Tate/November 1879" to front fly. 68 leaves of recto-only photograveurs of 65 paintings (including John Everett Millais' "Ophelia" and J. M. Waterhouse's "The Lady of Shalott") and two statues. Pages are toned with some light occasional soiling to page edges, not affecting images. Foxing to endpapers, as well as first and last blank pages with occasional negligible foxing throughout, also not affecting images. A very nice copy of this difficult to find catalogue of Henry Tate's first collection. Originally bequested to the National Gallery, the collection was turned down due to a lack of space and later formed the founding collection of what is known today as Tate Britain. ; Oblong Small 4to 9" - 11; Signed by Author; All shipments through USPS insured Priority Mail. .
