[Stock catalogues, numbered series: 10] Martin Schongauer
Crewkerne, N.G. Stogdon, 1996
(28 cm),  pp., illustrations. Publisher’s printed yellow wrappers. - Offers forty-one prints by the master and thirteen more by contemporaries and followers, all in the period c. 1450-1505. “This catalogue… serves as a vehicle for the sale of a remarkable collection of engravings by Schongauer, as a record of that collection, and as an introduction to a project which has as its long-term objective the establishment of a true chronology of Schongauer’s prints. This project is centred on the study of paper” (compiler’s prefatory note). “Apart from the seemingly superb average standard of quality of the impressions for sale, and the extraordinary rarity of most of them, what this catalogue offers is the opportunity to rethink the iconography and dating of many of these sheets on the basis of Mr Stogdon’s thoroughly reasoned and tightly argued approach…This catalogue, with its discussion of all the impressions known of each of these important prints, is an absolute must for any library even vaguely concerned with keeping up with the literature on Old Master prints.” (from a notice by David Landau, in Print Quarterly, volume 15, 1998, p.206). “Those interested in early prints must see and read this catalogue; it is equally important for all those studying the history of books, around and after the invention of printing” (from a notice in The Book Collector, Winter 1996, p.544). ¶ Lacking Price list. Covers lightly marked; otherwise a fine, clean copy.
