[Exhibition catalogues] 3 (rare) titles: (1) Catalogus van de voortentoonstelling

der kunstwerken van Nederlandsche Meesters bestemd voor de Internationale Tentoonstelling te Parijs 11878. In de kunstzalen der Maatschappij Arti et Amicitiae. Maart 1878. (Amsterdam), no publisher (printed by erven H. van Munster & Zoon), 1878, 16 p., original wrapper (minimal defects, very good copy).

Rare catalogue, illustrative for the appearance the Netherlands wanted to give itself for the world's fair. With in pencil on the front cover the name Fr. Lebret and lines at his work in the catalogue (by Lebret himself?). Also represented were: Apol, Eerelman, Israels, Koekkoek, Maris, Mauve, Mesdag, Rochussen, Roelofs. Ronner, Schipperus, Springer, Stortenbeker, Verschuur, Vos and others; (2) Katalogus van de tentoonstelling van nationale kleederdrachten bijeengebracht ter gelegenheid van de inhuldiging van Hare Majesteit koningin Wilhelmina 1898. Amsterdam, J.H. de Bussy, 1898, 62 p., entirely printed in green, original wrapper with Art Nouveau illustration by Van Leer, thin small 8vo. Wrapper torn on spine, browned at the end; (3) Catalogus van de tentoonstelling "De vrouw 1813-1913", "Meerhuizen" - Amsteldijk. Mei-october 1913 Amsterdam. Amsterdam, Electrische Drukkerij en Binderij Concordia, (1913), 526 p., with 3 (folding) plates, original illustrated cloth with "ties" and empty pocket to inside back board. Nice, feminist catalogue with a joke: the "ties" are handles allowing the book to be carried like a purse. With this version the pocket was probably intended to be empty (as with one of the versions listed in PiCarta, here the plan has been bound along), following up on the joke. (total 3)
