Accompanied by an original outer box.
This fine compilation includes illustrations with gold and silver leaf, "laid on so thick that the engraved designs of the watches could be reproduced exactly." Morgan received the catalogue on Christmas Day, 1912 in Rome and cabled Williamson, in New York 'It is the most beautiful book I have ever seen.' The catalogue was indeed with Morgan at the time of his passing in Rome, early 1913 (S.N. Behrman, Duveen, Random House, New York, 1953).
Morgan made 15 copies of this catalogue, of which this is number 11, specifically for family members and to special acquaintances, such as Royalty.
