The curator wasn’t sure which museum this was, i.e., what it's now called, but thought it might have been the Kunsthistorisches. As yet, however, we've been unable to confirm that. * A GREAT PRICE FOR THE RIGHT PERSONAL OR INSTITUTIONAL COLLECTOR! THE PHOTOGRAPHS ARE ALL OF SCULPTURES OR RELIEFS AND MUCH OF IT IS QUITE STUNNING IN NATURE! ** SEE THIS BOOK: CLICK ON THE THUMBNAIL PIC AT LEFT. FURTHER SCANS AVAILABLE ON REQUEST.
