1931 Garvan Collection and 1938 Hearst Collection Part II auction catalogues
Item# 9767    $1500
1931 Garvan Collection and 1938 Hearst Collection Part II auction catalogues

Two very rare hardcover auction catalogs: the Garvan Collection, sold in 1931 by the American Art Assoc., Anderson Galleries, Inc. (conducted by O. Bernet, H. H. Parke, A. N. Bade and H. E. Russell, Jr.); and the Hearst Collection Part II, sold in 1938 by Parke-Bernet Galleries, Inc. (conducted by O. Bernet, H. H. Parke and H. E. Russell, Jr.). We have searched and cannot find any other hardcover catalogs for these sales. Each hammer price is marked in pencil beside the corresponding description. There are also pencil (and one ink) corrections of several erroneous lot descriptions. An amazing find and a must have for any serious collector highly important Americana. These auctions took place after the stock market crash of 1929 when very few people had the means to buy expensive antiques, so clearly very few hardcover catalogs were produced. The owner must have been an active buyer. Her name and address are inked on the first inside page of each catalogue: Julia F. D. D---, 277 Federal Street, Greenfield, Massachusetts. Very good condition, tight bindings, clean bright covers stamped in gold on the spines. Each book measures 10.5 x 7.25 inches. The Garvan Collection sale consisted of 402 lots of early American furniture, pewter, Currier & Ives prints, and ceramics, and apparently realized $242,842.50. Part II of the Hearst Collection sale consisted of 570 lots of early American furniture and historical Staffordshire, and apparently realized a total of $80,972.50.

It is the good, better, best of all known collections. Many marks are clearly shown with wonderful descriptions. Edward ("Eddie" T. Chow Art Dealer and Collector 1910-1980. Eddie Chow is remembered as a significant collector-dealer in Chinese art during the postwar years. Born in Yangzhou, he was sent to Shanghai at the age of thirteen to study Chinese art with the dealer Zhu Heting. Chow was also mentored by Jacob Melchior, a Danish collector who worked for the International Maritime Customs Service. He soon developed a network that included some of the major collectors of the first half of the twentieth century, including Sir Percival David and George Eumorfopoulos. Chow first met Eumorfopoulos in the 1930s when the International Exhibition of Chinese Art at the Royal Academy in London was being organized. After he moved to Hong Kong in 1947, Chow built both his reputation as a dealer and his own significant collection of Chinese works of art. Twenty years later, in 1967, Chow moved to Geneva, Switzerland. Following his death in 1980, Chow’s collection was auctioned by Sotheby’s in Hong Kong and London.
