Pocket folder (21 by 27 cm) containing two books; wraps, 20.8 by 26.7 cm, 175 pp.; 16 pp., illus. in color and black and white.

The books are very good with light corner wear and some minor yellowing and foxing around the edges. The slimmer volume has a light crease to the upper corner of the front cover and faint rippling to the fore-edge. Text is in French. A beautifully produced set of exhibition catalogs. The first volume, Trésors de l’Ancien Nigéria, contains a lengthy history of art in Nigeria and features 100 objects, well-captioned, with both color and black and white images – many of which are full-page. The second volume, L’Art de l’Ancien Nigéria: Dans les Collections Publiques Françaises, contains eleven objects in public collections in France. Each object includes a full-page black and white photograph and is well captioned.
