This set includes Volumes 1-42, and a like-bound index to Volumes 1-12. 43 physical volumes in all, that require 4 feet of shelf space. In its introduction, the publication asks: "Who nowadays does not collect something? And The Connoisseur will include in its scope anything that any reasonable person collects, not only furniture, porcelain, pottery, prints, books, manuscripts, fiddles, and old silver, but also coins and medals, autographs, posters, and even stamps. We may have our own preferences, but our aim is to be comprehensive." At varying times, the subtitle reads "A Magazine for Collectors" or "With Which is Incorporated International Studies." A stunning set that will delightfully augment any personal library. Mullen Books also has for sale a subsequent run of vols. 62-106 of this periodical.
