The Art Work of Louis C. Tiffany
Garden City, NY: Doubleday, Page & Company, 1914. Hardbound. VG, with the exception of: a library label on the lower spine; an ornate donation bookplate from Tiffany to the Art Museum that de-accessioned the book; tiny crack beginning along front right lower edge, and also lower left spine edge easily repaired; most plates have an ornate and attractive blindstamp through the lower right corner; small library stamp at base of title page. Sounds a lot worse than it looks. Custom embossed and textured covers, of a goldish-orangish color. T.e.g. xxxii, 91pp. 20 tipped-in color plates and 42 photogravures with tissue guards printed with the descriptions of the illustrations. A calligrapher has placed a custom dedication on the ffep listing the museum and date to which this volume was donated in June 1916, and Tiffany has boldly signed it. This is copy #285 of 502 printed for private distribution. 10 of these copies were printed upon parchment, and 492 upon Japon paper. They were intended as promotional pieces, not as documentary or definitive texts. The chapters include: Tiffany the Painter; Tiffany the Maker of Stained Glass; Favrile Glass; Enamels and Jewelry; Textiles and Hand Stuffs; A Decorator of Interiors; A Builder of Homes; As Landscape Architect. The book was designed by Walter Gilliss and printed at the Country Life Press.
