"The present catalogue was translated and typed as a manuscript only for interior circulation."
This very scarce typescript catalogue is the only record of a remarkable exhibition of Block-Printed Papers held in Copenhagen at the Museum of Decorative Arts, being one of the most extensive of its kind hitherto. The catalogue was issued made by and for the Museum only. There was issued a box of 260 small (4" x 3.5") photographs of the block-papers exhibited, of which we can locate only 6 examples: Harvard, Cooper Hewitt (lacks catalogue), Chowan Univ. (lacks catalogue?), V&A Museum (lacks catalogue?), Designmuseum Danmark. Biblioteket (lacks catalogue?). The Koninklijke Bibliotheek has a copy of the typescript catalogue, but not the box of photographs.
