MONOGRAPHS. [Basel] Kunsthalle Basel. Meisterwerke griechischer Kunst. Zur 500-jahrfeier der Universität Basel. Exhibit 18. Juni - 25. September 1960. Basel 1960. 8vo (21x24cm), illustrated card covers as issued; 64 pages, 8 plates. Owner’s signature, shelf worn. Good.

A note from BCD: Only ten out of the over 600 exhibits are illustrated but the interest of this catalogue also lies in the private collector’s names who lent objects from their collections to the exhibition. Familiar names of scholars include Professors Pierre Amandry, Hansjörg Bloesch and Karl Schefold, whereas Robert Käppeli and George Ortiz, to name just a couple, are amongst the many collectors. Of course, the one and only Herbert Cahn could not be absent from this distinguished group of private individuals that are more than twice as many as the museums and institutions that lent their antiquities. What a change from today’s exhibitions of similar objects !
