Umberto Brunelleschi (1879-1949), Contes du temps jadis (Paris: l’Édition d’art, H. Piazza, 1912). “Achevé d’imprimer le 10 Octobre 1912 par G. Kadar, Paris”–Colophon. “Il a été tiré de cet ouvrage 400 exemplaires sur papier du Japon”–Verso of half-title. Graphic Arts Collection 2015- in process. Gift of Andrea G. Stillman.
Thanks to the generous gift of Andrea G. Stillman, the Graphic Arts Collection has acquired two volumes with illustrations designed by Umberto Brunelleschi. Both were published in limited editions by Jules Henri Piazza (1861-1929) under the imprint L’Edition d’Art (The Art Edition H. Piazza and Company). For over 30 years, Piazza issued luxury books in French and English illustrated with reproductions after designs by living artists. We are fortunate to add these two to our collection.
