The privately printed catalogue of a discerning collection, mostly of the Veronese school.

In 1915 Cannon donated Longhi's Portrait of Count Carlo Aurelio Widman to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Richter (1847-1937), a German art historian, has written a lengthy introductory history of the Italian school and focuses on the paintings in this collection. Lists 34 paintings, with two reproductions. Good copy, but lacking index of artists. Bookplate of Bernard Berenson. Subsequently, the present copy was in the library of Benedict Nicolson, a British art historian. At top of title-page, it is marked "Duplicate.". (Inventory #: 6057)
