Catalogue of the Principal Pictures in the Royal Collection at Windsor Castle
Limited edition, 1937
First edition, limited to 750 copies. Hardback in slipcase, quarter leather with gilt titling to spine, cloth boards with gilt Royal monogram to upper board. Top edge gilt. 27.5 × 20cm, 350pp , 100 collotype plates.
The author was the Surveyor to the King's Pictures, and here catalogues the most important paintings in the Royal collection at Windsor Castle. The book is illustrated with 100 black and white tissue-guarded plates, and the text consists of a description of the paintings, with (where relevant) exhibition history and provenance.
A decent solid copy but there is foxing to the page edges and endpapers, and some light marking over the titling to spine. The main body of text is in good order. The slipcase is bumped and rubbed but has done a good job in protecting the book.
