Caproni, P.P. and Brother. Seventy-Seven Photographic Views of Schools Decorated with Plastic Reproductions of Sculpture, and Supplementary Catalogue. Boston 1910 (School Edition). 48p, over 100 photos. Good paperbound (mended tear to front cover; mended closed tears to last 2 pages). ** Not a catalogue (the supplementary catalogue mentioned in the title was issued separately and is not here), but very interesting documentation of how the Caproni casts of classical statues and reliefs were mounted and displayed in schools and colleges, chiefly in the Boston area. Many interior views of classrooms, theaters, assembly halls, etc.; also a few exteriors. Can be sent outside the U.S. for less than the default shipping rate.
