How it works


Hard to find catalogue, the only other copy I can find when searching on-line is at the Rijksmuseum Library in  Amsterdam.

During the 1970s, Pierneef's daughter, Marita Bailey, and her husband established the Bailey Collection, made up of a large number of Pierneef's works and personal effects. A portion of this Collection was purchased by the South African Department of National Education in 1975. The rest of the Collection, made up of some 350 items, was placed on public exhibition in Stellenbosch. In 1980, the Department purchased the remainder of the Bailey Collection.

This 20 page catalogue lists comprehensive details, descriptions and information on 202 works in that collection (see pics 2 and 3 for a close-up). Text in English and Afrikaans.

Some minor signs of use and wear, with very light foxing in patches on the cover. Overall though in very good, clean and attractive condition. A4, 20 pages, black and white illustrations.
