Wrappers, 141 [1] pp. The book is in Near Fine condition without significant defects, losses, remarks and stains. Restored upper corners of front cover (pasted with small triangle pieces of paper), bottom left corner is slightly rounded, some small closed tears to the front cover top edge, rebacked (repaired spine), minor tear to the upper edge of title and small piece is broken off of a bottom right corner, but still looks like almost fine preserved copy. Present catalog of Russian's Museum Fine Art department lists almost all art works from the collection of museum holdings in the order of their location in museum exhibition halls and inside each hall in ascending order by inventory number. Catalog begins with foreword and museum plan, at the end included alphabetical index of artists and art works, separate index added for the portrait works. Catalog is of particular value also because it was printed before 28 February 1917 when the February Revolution began, i.e. it was the last edition. The first such catalog of Russian Museum's Fine Arts Department was issued in 1898, year the museum was opened. Besides such large catalogs museum publishing activity included regular smaller catalogs - summary index of fine arts department and illustrated catalog. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
