c1927 Decoration Tibetaine
What Our Customers Say...
Colour Plates, Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding
In the original French, with an introductory essay by Jacques Batot.
A fascinating study of the art of Tibet, with depictions of the jewellery, fabric, embroidery, painting, bronzes and masks of the region.
With twelve leaves of text, followed by forty-one loosely inserted plates, six of which are in colour. Collated, lacking one plate, plate IX.
The objects depicted derive largely from the collection of the Musée Guimet, as well as a few from Bacot's private collection, and that of Alice Getty.
Bacot travelled extensively in China and the Tibetan Border regions prior to 1914, and build the first substantial collection of Tibetan art for the Guimet.
Undated; dated circa 1927 via WorldCat.
In the publisher's original quarter cloth portfolio style binding, with paper covered boards and cloth tie. Rear board detached, with back strip only loosely attached to front board at tail. Discolouration and handwritten title label to back strip. Significant discolouration to boards, with bumping to front board perimeters. Internally, unbound as issued. Pages generally bright and clean, with spotting to tail of two plates.
