Title: Colour in Painting
Description: Basle: J. R. Geigy, 1965. Hardcover. 24.5x32.5cm. "Geigy's association with colours goes back over 200 years to the time when the founder of the firm, Johann Rudolf Geigy, set up as a drug merchant in Basle, Switzerland, and imported, amongst other things, dyewoods for the then flourishing silk ribbon industry. In 1859 Geigy began the manufacture of synthetic dyes and was among the first to do so. Since the modest beginnings in 1758 the firm has grown into a world organization engaged on research into and the manufacture of a very wide range of chemicals." Blue covered boards, light grey titling front and spine; spotting to fore edge of page block, occasionally encroaching fore edge extremity within, otherwise content crisp and bright, including 18 tipped in plates in fine fettle. Jacket inferior with marks, small tears at edges and two surface imperfections where stickers were removed, although image on front remains unsullied. Stored in cardboard slipcase with covering similar to book but now faded and marked with several instances of chipping to corners and one edge.. Very Good .
