"Paintings and Drawings, the Work of the Late Arthur W. Dow," from Illustrated catalogue of oil paintings and drawings ..
New York: The American Art Association, 1923. Hardcover. VG- (Illus. are muddy because of copying, but otherwise nifty.). Black three-ringed notebok holding 31 copied leaves, 14 BW illus. Photocopies kept in three-ringed binder, containing 31 pages from what appears to be the American Art Association auction catalogue: Illustrated catalogue of oil paintings and drawings, Ipswich prints from wood blocks, the work of Prof. Dow and his important collection of Japanese prints, kakemono, screens, buddhist temple ornaments [etc.] to be sold at public sale on Wed. and Th. March 28-29th at 2.15. The pages list 89 specific pieces (lots 373-462) rendered by American artist Arthur Wesley Dow (1857-1922). The catalogue entries include titles, media, and textual description of subject matter. 14 are also pictured in BW, though these are tough to discern because of the copying quality. Many entries in the original catalogue were noted with winning bidder names and prices realized. Surnames of bidders include Chester, Hess, Harada, Meade, Matsuki, Turner, Tannahill, Selleck, Bliss, Amsden, Parker, Towne, Stanton, and more. A rare resource indeed.
