BRITISH PARLIAMENTARY PAPERS: IRISH UNIVERSITY PRESS: EDUCATION: FINE ARTS, 6 vols
large folio FINE ARTS (6 vols) large folio * PHOTOGRAPHS & FURTHER DETAILS OF CONTENTS AVAILABLE ON REQUEST. There are approximately 5,000 British Parliamentary Papers for the period 1800 to 1900 - a mountain of source material that, however, because of its traditional chronological arrangement, has been difficult to access. The Irish University Press programme of facsimile reprints of these papers overcame this by commissioning academic specialists to select the most important papers and group them on the principle of 32 subject sets in the folio size of the originals. This series was published c.1960-1972. All the volumes are strongly bound in the publisher's original half green morocco leather. They are designed to outlast generations of heavy use and wear and have the great advantage over the original printings because on a strong laid acid free paper. Reproductions of original maps and other illustrations are included throughout the series. Each volume now offered has neat library stamp on front endpaper and verso title, otherwise entirely unmarked and in excellent condition. EDUCATION: FINE ARTS (6 Volumes) Comprising: VOLUME 1 Reports from the Select Committee on Art Unions with minutes of evidence, appendix and index, 1845 576 pp VOLUME 2 Reports from Select Committees on the promotion of fine arts and on national monuments and works of art with minutes of evidence, appendices, index and Reports from the commissioners of fine arts, 1841-1847 586 pp VOLUME 3 Reports from Select Committees and commissions of works of art and on the national gallery with minutes of evidence, appendices, indices and Reports from the fine arts commissioners, 1847-1863 434 pp 4 plans (2 folding, 3 coloured) VOLUME 4 Report from the Select Committee on the management of the national gallery and on national monuments of antiquity and fine art with the proceedings, minutes of evidence, appendices and index, 1852-53 1024 pp 9 folding plans (3 coloured) VOLUME 5 Report of the commissioners on the present position of the Royal Academy in relation to the fine arts with minutes of evidence, appendix, index and observations of the members of the Royal Academy on the Report, 1863-1864 776 pp VOLUME 6 Reports from Select Committees on schools of art, art union laws, purchases from the Paris exhibition and the ancient monuments bill with proceedings, minutes of evidence, appendices, indices, and additional Reports on works of art, 1864-1897 846 pp 15 folding charts and plans(1 coloured).
