[first volume is VG+, with only light handling wear; second volume is Good only, due to water-stain on rear cover]. (B&W and color photographs) Catalogues for a 3-day auction held at Sotheby's Japan establishment, with "all lots flown with care to Tokyo by BOAC." The first two days covered four categories: Antiquities and Persian Pottery; European Decorative Paintings; Chinese and Japanese Works of Art; and European Arms and Armour. The final day was devoed entirely to Impressionist and Modern Paintings. Among the latter were works by Picasso, Renoir, Chagall, Gauguin, Monet, Dufy, Bracque, Matisse, Cezanne, Degas, Utrillo, Foujita, and many others -- kind of a who's-who of French Impressionism. NOTE: These will be sold as a pair only; don't even ask.
