Two pages with quite minor staining in fore margin, otherwise a very fine copy in a handsome binding. This is a well-presented and very attractively bound "Catalogue Raisonné" showing four decades of the work of the Dutch etcher extraordinaire, Marius Alexander Jacques Bauer (1867-1932). After studying at the arts academy in The Hague, Bauer visited Dutch colonial Indonesia in 1925 and 1931, taking part there in exhibitions at Batavia and other principal cities. His work was chosen for the International Colonial Exhibition held in Paris in 1931. His etchings can typically be identified by their extremely dense accumulation of fine lines, and he is one of the very few artists from The Netherlands whose work includes subjects drawn from colonial Dutch localities.

The Forsyte Saga Volumes I to III: The Man of Property, Indian Summer of a Forsyte and In Chancery, and Awakening and To Let. A Modern Comedy Volumes I to III: The White Monkey and A Silent Wooing, The Silver Spoon and Passers By, and Swan Song. Also Saint's Progress, Villa Rubein, The Burning Spear, The Inn of Tranquillity and Verse New & Old, Satires and A Commentary, On Forsyte 'Change, The Island Pharisees, The Country House, Fraternity, The Patrician, The Dark Flower, The Freelands, and Beyond. All volumes of The Forsyte Saga and A Modern Comedy include a fold-out Forsyte family tree. John Galsworthy (18671933) was a novelist and playwright, whose place in the history of English literature rests on the vast social chronicle comprising his three trilogies, The Forsyte Saga (1922), A Modern Comedy (1929) and End of the Chapter (1935). He returned to the Forsyte family in 1918 with a short story Indian Summer of a Forsyte. A chance remark by his god-daughter, Dorothy Ivens, on reading the story led to In Chancery (1920), which concludes at a clearly defined point of change with the funeral of Queen Victoria. To Let (1921), set in 1920, is placed precisely in the contemporary historical moment, and written in a more impressionist style, capturing the post-war atmosphere of restless gaiety, with its undercurrent of nihilism. Condition: The bindings are tight and firm. There is slight wear to the extremities, including slight bumping, and some slight marks to the boards. The Man of Property has a split on the tail of the spine which has been repaired. Internally the pages are bright and clean. The First and the Last has some spotting to the first and last couple of pages, and Fraternity has very occasional spots. There is a small signature in ink on the front free endpaper of Swan Song and a small ink mark to the rear free end paper of Volume 19. There is some slight damage to the exposed edge of the fold-out family tree in Volume 13. Overall the condition is very good indeed. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
