This periodical for collectors of art and decorative arts features illustrations in monochrome and in color, including some that are tipped-in and some that fold out. Beyond the articles that it published, the magazine is also noteworthy for its stylish design. In many cases the original printed stiff paper wrappers are bound in (excluding vols. 1-3,5-11,13-28,92-98). The covers of most of the volumes show minor to moderate soiling and moderate shelf wear except as follows. The spines of volumes 4 and 12 are damaged. Volumes 29 through 63 and volumes 81 and 83 show heavier wear--chipping at the edges and leather which is scuffed or torn in some places. Volume 85 has a minor tear on the spine. Volumes 85 through 99 (incomplete; 10 books) have some water damage--ranging from staining at the lower edges to pages stuck together. Even with these few problems, this series would make a wonderful addition to most libraries. This collection of the magazine was formerly part of the reference library of H.P. Kraus.
