Architectural and ornament drawings of the 16th to the early 19th centuries in the collection of the University of Michigan Museum of Art

Ann Arbor, University of Michigan, 1965
(28 cm), [42] pp., [32] leaves of illustrations. Publisher’s brown cloth binding. - Catalogue of 107 drawings of ornament collected by the University of Michigan Museum over the previous six years (about half were bought in the Edmond Fatio sale, conducted by Rauch in Geneva, 3-4 June 1959). “The cataloguing is as intelligent as the collecting has been. Dr Wunder brings to it the results of his experience gathered while curating the superb ornament drawings of Cooper Union, and his accurate knowledge of the ornament collection in the Metropolitan Museum. On this basis he gives exact and verifiable reasons for each attribution and statement” (from a review by A. Hyatt Mayor, in Master Drawings, volume 3, 1965, pp.282-283). ¶ Very good, unmarked copy.
