[BIENNALE D'ARTE DI VENEZIA] - Interessante e completa serie di cataloghi della Biennale d'Arte di Venezia che vanno dal primo anno di edizione, il 1895, sino alla 53esima edizione del 2009. Venice: 1895-2009. A large and rare collection, testimony of this fundamental art show.

During the World Wars the event was suspended (in 1916-18 and in 1943-47). The format and the condition varies: the first catalogues, 1895-97, with worn wrappers and incomplete; the first decade of the 20th-century with some wear: some without wrappers and with missing leaves; the second decade with some light wear to wrappers; third decade with lighter wear; the remaining years in good condition (apart from the year 1954 which has worn wrappers). Together with 4 other volumes connected to the Biennale. Sold as viewed and not subject to return.
