About this Item

Reduced now 40% off! Describes the present (1917) collection of the Classical Collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, opened in its own separate wing. The collection includes Greek & Roman sculpture, pottery, vases, sarcophagi, statues, & more. Colophon contains statement that only 1000 copies of this handbook were printed, but no number of this one. Copyright date in front is December 1917, which matches date on full title page, so this is likely the first edition. With 276 pages, including 159 black-and-white photographs, Bibliography & Index, it is a hard-to-find piece of history of the Met. Graded VG-/G+. Illustrated beige wraps with rough-cut page edges show light soiling, moderate edgewear all around, especially on bottom & fore edge (outer) side. Light foxing to endpapers, but NO writing, underlining, or highlighting; no creasing. Please see our photos! Description & photos copyright Gargoyle Books 2018. Same Day Shipping on all orders received by 2 pm Weekdays (Pacific time); Weekends & holidays ship next business day. Bookseller Inventory # 005266
