About this Item

Bruges / Tournai / Louvain, Gilde de Saint-Thomas et de Saint-Luc, 1863-1913, in-4°, issues of between 50 and 500 pages. Volumes (tômes) I-XXV (all published) , covering the ''Séances'' 1(1863) - 46(1913). Séances 2 and 3 were never published ( see Jan De Maeyer, Kadoc studie 5 De Sint-Lukasscholen en de Neo-gothiek). With numerous illustrations in b/w and some color lithographs. Added is an index to the first 35 ''Séances''. AVAILABLE-DISPONIBLE; complete set except for volume (tôme) 24 which is missing. Bound in 12 half leather volumes and 7 sewn volumes with the original wrappers (volumes 9, second part, 13, 14, 21, 22, 23, 25, ). Added is the general index ( Table générale) which covers the first 35 issues. Some foxing at some pages and plates but generally a good set. Nearly complete set of this art periodical published by the Christian guild (Gilde de Saint-Thomas et de Saint-Luc ). They were influenced by Pugin in their ideas on neo gothic architecture and restoration. Their founders would become the creators of the neo gothic style on the continent, which developed into the ''official'' style of the Roman Catholic church during the second half of the 19th century partly under the influence of Baron Béthune, who became president in 1873. He was also the driving force behind the ''Écoles de Saint-Luc'' which cared for the education of architects , artists and craftsmen. Especially the first issues are quite rare as there were only about 100 members of the guild during this period. In 1882 this changed when the guild started to cooperate with the ''Revue de l'art Chrétien''. (Most of the later volume are available as separate volumes, please ask by e-mail).
