Collection Hayashi Objets d'art du Japon et de la Chine : peintures, livres, Bing, S[iefried] - compiler
16 Bing, S[iefried] - compiler Collection Hayashi Objets d'art du Japon et de la Chine : peintures, livres
Paris MM. Durand-Ruel 1902 First Edition; First Printing Softcover Good Folio 
iv, 310 & [2] pages; Original decorative wrappers: rough buff covered flexible card stock, printed in pale green. A worn copy of the first part only (of three) of this landmark sale catalogue. OCLC: 81092230 The collector was the Japanese collector/dealer Tadamasa Hayashi, [1853-1906]. Hayashi arrived in Paris in 1878, as interpreter and assistant to Wakai Kenzaburo (1834-1908), to attend the Exposition Universelle. After the Fair was concluded he started the antiquarian business with Wakai . When in 1886 Wakai retired, he continued independently and in a few years he became one of the most successful dealers in Paris. He became Chief Commissioner for the Japanese Government to the Exhibition Universelle, Paris, 1900, for which he selected the oriental art displayed. Hayashi made crucial contributions to the formation of the major collections of his day, and supplied the basic information for the first western publications on Japanese art, such as "L'art Japonais" by Louis Gonse and the monographs on Utamaro and Hokusai by Edmond de Goncourt. The preface to this catalogue of Hayashi's own collection was by Siefried Bing (1838-1905), also a famous dealer and collector of Japanese art. Bing is cited as expert for the sale, and compiled the catalogue. ["Commissaire-priseur: Me. P. Chevallier ... Expert: M. S. Bing ..."] This first part of the Hayashi sale consisted of sculptures in wood and bronze, porcellain and ceramics, lacquers, inro, objects in silver, and paintings and drawings, both Japanese and Chinese. 1646 lots, carefully described (text in French), with plates, mostly in collotype and gravure, with tissue guards. This copy is worn, but complete, with original covers detached (and a tear to the front wrapper, partially repaired with old cellophane tape, now somewhat browned). The spine has entirely perished, and the sewing is broken in many places. A few tears throughout, one is long (but without loss) - to a section of text (inro). Moderate soiling to the first title page, printed in red and black. Large, heavy volume, subject to supplemental postage charges overseas. ; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings.
