Venice Scene Watercolor Print by Frank Brangwyn (1920's)

By: N/A

Price: $15.00

Publisher: England, Unknown: 1920's

Seller ID: 1120


Beautiful watercolor print showing the crowd enjoying a sunny day in Venice, Italy. I purchased it from a longtime dealer who saved plates from damaged books. I had a hard time figuring out who the artist was though because he only printed the name on one print! But the style is so unique it was easy to see that the others were British artist, Frank Brangwyn's, work too. The print is tipped-in on the paper rather than being printed on it and measures in its entirety 9-1/... View more info

Publisher: S. Paolo, Alba Italy, Pia Societa: 1964

Edition: Edizioni Paoline

Seller ID: 2401

Condition: Near Fine condition


This is an unusual little Catholic missal which measures a charming 3" wide and 5" tall. I'm not sure whether the boards are celluloid, or actual wood which has been given a beveled edge and a plasticized finish. I'm leaning towards the latter, but can't prove it. The spine is a leather-like surface and outer page edges are inked in red as per design. The type is good sized and the text is in both Latin and Italian. The previous owner's name is written on the title page,... View more info

This is the cleverest travel guide I've ever seen. I have had pop-up maps, but not with a 64 page guide in color, a pen nestled inside the spine and a flip-top cap above the pen which houses the compass. It's a great size at 4" x 6" too, perfect for carrying around. The contents say, "See it, buy it, watch it, taste it, know it, note it, index it, and speak it! Sounds like a vacation! View more info
