32 photogravures. 117 unnumbered leaves. Large & heavy folio, orig. half crimson morocco & marbled boards (upper joint starting, extremities slightly rubbed), spine gilt. New York: Privately Printed [at the DeVinne Press], 1922. Limited to 200 numbered copies of this richly illustrated privately printed catalogue, printed on fine thick paper. Goldman (1857-1937), a banker and philanthropist, collected Renaissance Dutch, Italian, and Flemish paintings, as well as sculptures. In 1916, Goldman purchased Frans Hals' Portrait of a Man Sitting for $175,000, a exceptionally large sum for the period. The catalogue presents the most important examples of Goldman's sculpture and picture holdings, each item is accompanied by a long description and thorough notes on provenance. There is also a historical introduction, likely by Valentiner (1880-1958), the art museum director and historian. Very good copy, with pencil annotations from the previous owner regarding provenance.
