Excerpt from A Handbook of the S. P: Avery Collection of Prints and Art Books in the New York Public Library Mr. Avery made it a point to secure one or more examples of the work of nearly every contemporary artist whom he had met or of Whom he had heard. The result is the present collection of etchings and lithographs, representing 978 artists, and offering a comprehensive view of the state of these arts during the past fifty years, particularly in F rance, where they have been most cultivated. While the work is mainly by Frenchmen, other nationalities are also represented, particularly the German, Dutch, Belgian and English. Sometimes, as in the case of Barye, or of Daumier, the one plate here listed is the only known etching by the artist.
