Description: Sylvestre, Henri. THE TRIUMPHS OF MODERN ART / CONTAINING THE MOST NOTABLE PAINTINGS SELECTED FROM THE MODERN MASTERPIECES OF THE WHOLE WORLD. Philadelphia: Gebbie & Co., 1891. 17.25" x 12". As issued in parts. 25 parts plus the Extra Number (26 total.) Containing 104 leaves of tinted photo photogravures and etchings (4 in each part) on heavy stock, with tissue guards, accompanying text leaves also with numerous typogravures. All loose as issued and in publisher's printed paper folders/wrappers. The whole housed in cloth folio. Folio torn and in pieces, most wrappers detached, a few with publisher's notice stamp to front cover, contents in excellent condition overall though one leaf (text leaf, not plate) with some marginal tears. The final part contains title pages, preface leaves, and contents, as the whole was intended to be bound. Very Good. ***************************************** An impressive collection of gravures, finely printed, and scarcely found complete in the parts. Four additional plates were issued in the "Extra Number" part, and this accounts for the 4 extra plates present here and not found in most bound copies.
