Islamic paintings from the 11th to the 18th century in the Collection of Hans P. Kraus. H. P. Kraus, New York, first edition, 1972. in-4 pleine toile verte de l'éditeur, vignette sur le plat. 291 pp, 203 illustrations monochrome, et 55 planches couleurs. Tirage limité à 750 exemplaires, copie No. 314. (Creswell suppl. II - 457). "This is a large and handsome - even lavish - publication, on art paper throughout, and illustrating all 252 items of the collection; the colour-plates are splendid.. Dr Grube has written a full and thorough catalogue with ample references and annotations. It is divided into six main sections: Early Islamic (25 items), Mongol (8 items), Timurid (36 items), Safavid (107 items including a handful of post-Safavid works), Ottoman (48 items) and Mughal (27 items). The first of these sections begins with a small group of fragments from Fustat (eleventh-twelfth century) In general this catalogue has been compiled with great care and thoroughness; it is a full, detailed, and lavishly illustrated presentation of a fine collection, and is well worthy of the material it describes."
