About this Item

Wrappers loose from sewn textblock, slightly chipped around the edges, previous owner's bookplate on inside of front wrapper, else near fine to fine with no internal markings. Dikran G. Kelekian [1868-1951] was an authority, collector and dealer in Near Eastern Art. He opened his New York gallery after coming to the United States to participate in the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago, 1893. "The impact of Dikran Garabed Kelekian¿art collector and dealer¿on the history of late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century collecting, particularly in the United States, is difficult to overstate. Textiles, including those from late Roman, Byzantine, and early Islamic Egypt, numbered among Kelekian¿s many interests. Although he did not participate in or sponsor excavations in Egypt, Kelekian¿s Cairo gallery served as a base for purchasing Egyptian antiquities, including Late Antique, commonly referred to as Coptic, textiles. Kelekian was collecting and selling these textiles at a time when the wider public was introduced to the later periods of Egyptian history and art." [info from Metropolitan Museum of Art] DOCUMENTS OF COPTIC ART is a rare booklet which offers examples of Coptic art in sculpture and textiles mostly from the sixth century CE .
