Notes

First edition. Vol. 1 is number 18 from a limited edition of 20 on Van Gelder paper, intended to be bound in leather, this copy is in slightly variant red cloth. This "groundbreaking two-volume study of Islamic painting" by one of the pioneers of Islamic art history in Germany was "undoubtedly" his major publication. In it, "Schulz attempts not only to highlight the chronological development of Persian painting style, but also to provide very helpful, even by the contemporary standard, lists of artist names and signatures" (Gierlichs). The second volume of plates includes several reproductions of pieces from Schulz's own private collection.
