Seventeenth Annual Exhibition.

Philadelphia: Printed by Russell and Martien, 1829. Item #689

8vo.  200 x 140 mm. [8 x 5 ¼ inches].  19 pp. Stitched as issued; some soiling to the title-page and edges a bit fragile. 

Exhibition catalogues featuring the paintings and sculpture by American and European masters, with an emphasis on the works of Academy members.  The catalogue is organized geographically by spaces in the Philadelphia Academy.  There is a statement at the beginning of the catalogue which states that "those numbers marked thus * are to be disposed of."  This is the first time I have seen a catalogue listing items to be deaccessioned.
