Brussels: G. Van Oest, 1912. Hardcover. Folio. Bellini (c.1400-c.1470) was a key figure in the development of Renaissance painting in northern Italy. He also founded something of a dynasty, with his sons and son-in-law, Andrea Mantegna, all becoming famous painters in their own right. Most of Bellini’s paintings have disappeared, and his two surviving sketchbooks, one at the Louvre and one at the British Museum, are how he is best remembered. These two oversized folio volumes lavishly reproduce the masterful drawings from each sketch book along with a facing description of each. Volume I has 134 plates and Volume II has 100. Many are on double pages and fold out. Very good in the original half vellum with brown paper boards and gilt title to spine and front boards. As with most heavy books, the joints show some splitting but have been repaired and are holding tight. The vellum has some soiling and spotting, and there is minor scuffing to the paper boards. The interior is bound tightly and is very clean. ART/8122. Very Good.

Glenview, IL: Karen Hanmer, 1999. Number 4 of 20 copies. Signed and numbered by the book artist. Karen's artist-made books are physical manifestations of personal essays intertwining history, culture, politics, science and technology. She utilizes both traditional and contemporary book structures, and the work is often playful in content or format. She exhibits widely, and her work is included in collections ranging from Tate Britain and the Library of Congress to UCLA and Graceland (from artist's statement). In this amusing book, Karen utilizes the flag book structure originated by Hedi Kyle to juxtapose and contrast two staples of western art history, "Mona Lisa" and "Waterloo," a poker dogs painting by Cassius Coolidge. Partial images of each work alternate as the flag images are turned. When the book is completely open the full poker dogs picture is seen. The images are reproduced with pigment inkjet prints. The book is 8 x 4.5 inches closed and 8 x 19 inches when open. Housed in archival storage case with Velcro closures. In fine condition. ARTISTSB/070618. Fine.
