Red binding cloth lightly soiled, spine faded, spine ends frayed. Front free endpaper is loose and chipped. Thomas E. Kirby (1846-1924), with his partners James F. Sutton and R. Austin Robertson, founded the American Art Association (AAA) in NYC in 1883, one of the premier art auction houses of its time (American Art galleries, 6 East 23rd St.). Known for his 'million dollar voice,' Kirby conducted the sales himself, and is credited with creating the style of modern art auctions, instituting an atmosphere of elegance and style, and enforcing standards in order to counteract the negative reputation held by auctioneers of the day. Publication of this autobiographical work coincides with the exhibition of the works of Vassili Verestchagin at the American Art Galleries in 1888. 196 pages. Vasily Vasilyevich Vereshchagin (Russian: 1842-1904) was one of the most famous Russian battle painters and one of the first Russian artists to be widely recognized abroad. The graphic nature of his realist scenes led many of them to never be printed or exhibited. 'As it would take too long to give a complete account of all my travels and experiences, I have selected certain characteristic episodes here and there and put them together in a book of sketches.' contents: Central Asia: 1. Samarcand; Russo-Turkish War: 2. On the Danube; 3. The passage of the Balkans; 4. The march on Adrianople - Strukoff; 5. M.D. Skobeleff; 6. S. Turgenieff.
