About this Item: Collection Baur Geneve, Geneva, 1976. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. Text in English and French. Illustrations in color, black and white. Brown cloth boards without original dust jacket. Gilt titles on Spine. Clean, tight and very good. A beautiful reference catalogue presenting the collection of Chinese jades and hardstones of Geneva Baur Museum in Switzerland, written by Pierre-F. Schneeberger, curator of the institution, translated by Katherine Watson. Published in 1976, limited edition of 1600 copies, of which this is No. 922. Illustrated with numerous black and white photo plates, this catalogue describes 137 pieces in detail, including jade dishes, bowls, cups, vessels, and others, many with tissue overlays showing the full design. "The first jade was bought in England in 1920; the last arrived in Geneva in 1951, the year in which Alfred Baur died. The majority of the pieces were acquired over the thirty intervening years through the Japanese dealer-collector Kumasaku Tomita who procured the greater part of all the Baur Collection. They were bought either in Japan or, most frequently, in China, especially in Peking. A few pieces came from dealers in London or Geneva." (Introduction) Alfred Baur (1865 - 1951) was the keeper of the Victoria & Albert Museum. A well-known and deeply respected Chinese art historian and scholar. He was born in Andelfingen, Switzerland (Zurich). He attended school in Winterthur and joined a large international trading company which posted him in Colombo, Ceylon. When Baur came back to Switzerland in 1906, he settled in Geneva. During his travels Alfred Baur developed a passion for art. His interest in oriental art had grown increasingly since the end of the previous century, stimulated as it was by scientific research, archeological excavation and the writings of a number of European experts. Alfred Baur brought together a collection of Chinese porcelain, jade and Japanese art objects which stands out as one of the most beautiful private collections in the world today. A private collection reflects the preferences of an amateur and, as such reveals the spirit of his time. Baur chose to buy "small quantities of rare works of art rather than large numbers of articles of inferior quality". Through his collections, he appears as a man of great taste. During his lifetime, he donated his collections to a foundation which bears his name and that of his wife, a Genevese by birth: the "Fondation Alfred et Eugénie Baur-Duret". Size: 9.3X11.4X1.2 inches 216 pages. Seller Inventory # 000368

About this Item: Collections Baur-Genève, Switzerland, 1972. Hardcover. Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Included. 1st Edition. English and French text; Hardcover (cloth with dust jacket); 24 x 29.3 cm; 2.252 Kg; Introduction of 22 pages followed by an extensive catalogue with black and white and colour illustrations, each with caption.; LIMITED EDITION OF 1000 COPIES, OF WHICH THIS IS NUMBER 188.; Signs of wear in the dust jacket, with some yellowing on spine and some peeling of the laminated layer of the dust jacket on the top and bottom of the spine and also on the top of the front and back cover. The dust jacket is now protected with a clearcover. The outside text block shows some yellowing. The interior is in very good condition, apart from an old bookseller sticker glued to the front free endpaper and a tiny mark on the bottom right of one page (bent in the past).; When the Baur Collection museum opened in 1964, few people were aware that this private museum housed one of the most important collections of Chinese ceramics in Europe."In these last two volumes of the catalogue therefore our scope will be found limited almost entirely to wares produced during the reigns of K'ang Hsi (1662-1722), Yung Chêng (1723-1735), and Ch'in Lung (1736-1795). But few periods have been more prolific in invention: and to all lovers of Chinese porcelain these are familiar and evocative names calling to mind a succession of styles of unusual brilliance.(.) The present volume is devoted exclusively to the porcelains with monochrome glazes. (.) Their representation in the Baur Collection is one of quite exceptional richness and strengh. Shown here (with relatively few lacunae) is the full gamut of tones and colours that the 18th century potters of the Ching-tê-chên were able to devise, while some of the rarest and most prized effects are present in generous measure. Outstanding among the latter are the "peachbloom" pinks, pale "clair-de-lune" blues and muchfavoured soft celadon greens, the development of which seems to belong especially to the period about 1715-1745. This part of the collection may therefore be said to offer much of unusual value both to the student, and to the casual visitor." excerpt from the introduction by John Ayers, Keeper at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, 1972.
