Old Masters – Michel Mayence, Collection Stefan Carl. Part I: Old Master Paintings. Introduction by Wilhelm von Bode. Catalogue of the sale. Berlin, Lepke, Feb. 27, 1917. 4to. 49 pp. With 79 (41 full-page) plate illus. Orig. h. cloth.

The practically completely illustrated catalogue of the 82 works, brought together under the accompaniment of Bredius, Hofstede de Groot and Bode:

“ The collection Michel from Mayence, still in best memory of elder connoisseurs by repeated exhibitions, especially of the Dusseldorf exhibitions of 1886 and 1904, forms a compact whole: except for two pictures all paintings belong to the Netherlandish schools of the 17th century ”

(Wilhelm von Bode). – The equally wanted, though here not present catalogue of the 2nd part was on the 70 old porcelains of Michel (1844-1900). – Boards paled on three sides, head edge slightly foxing, otherwise almost impeccable.
