VILLA MONTALTO, Florence. "The Elysium of Beauty." A most interesting collection of large original photographs of the house, contents, and gardens, almost certainly taken in conjunction with the ‘sale by private treaty' of the property in 1905.
Manuscript, 1905. Hard Cover. Very Good. They are contained within a contemporary half red morocco folder, gilt lettered Montalto May 1905, and with the armorial ‘Mexborough' book-plate. The covers are rather worn, and some of the photographs are chipped or creased, or have surface damage. A unique record. Folio. 430mm x 350mm. 1905. Originally built in the seventeenth century, Villa Montalto, as it is today, was remodelled internally with great grandeur by the German Prince Hochberg in 1885 when he chose it as his residence. It was subsequently owned by the Earl of Mexborough, a noted connoisseur and art collector. On his death Anne Countess of Mexborough sold the house and all its contents, works of art, &c, and returned to England. 88 photographs (18 mounted on original card). The largest measures 380mm x 300mm.. Together with... The original 12 page illustrated sale brochure, by Robinson Williams & Burnands, 89, Mount Street, London. "Montalto is barely a mile from the historical town of Florence on the beautiful slopes of Fiesdle an unsurpassed position with charming surroundings, forming a veritable paradise from the dust and noise of the town. ... originally the property of a Prince and now the home of a widowed English Countess [it] stands unique, its late master having lavished untold wealth and taste within its walls and apartments, including a perfect system of lighting arranged by that wonderful artist, ‘Manelli' of Milan, who carried out the principal painting of the reception suite."

Tissue guarded (with caption) colour frontispiece and a further 49 other colour plates - all with captioned tissue-guards bound in at the rear of the book - as called for. Many consider this to be Arthur Rackham's definitive work. Three corners bumped. A couple of light bumps to board edges. Some rubbing to the cloth at the head and tail of the spine and to a couple of corners with the tail of the spine also a little bumped. Some foxing - most noticable to the half-title page - also present to the title page and following two or three leaves - scattered or non-existent elsewhere. A possible printer's flaw has left the letter 'e' of 'Kensington' on the front board almost entirely free of gilt. A very few light soil marks to the front and rear boards with a very small circular mark half the way up the spine. An essentially well preserved, clean, tight copy of this important first edition.
