Book of the Month



We are celebrating the Ringling North Collection in the Special Collections Reading Room and our book of the month for June is Les émaux champlevés de la princesse Marie Ténichév by Denis Roche (Paris: J. Povolozky & Cie., 1922?).
Maria Klavdievna Tenisheva (1858–1928), princess, philanthropist, artist and collector, was a renowned patron of the arts in turn of the century Russia. 20 colour plates illustrate her designs in champlevé enamel and range from letter openers and plates to candelabras and goblets, produced in bronze, silver, gold and ivory.
Denis Roche (1868-1951), a translator by profession, brought Nabokov and Chekhov (among others) to the attention of French readers, but this work is one of several authored by him on the Russian arts.
Little is known about Jacques Povolozky, but this beautifully marbled and hand-illustrated folder is a testament to the collectability and quality of his work as an emigré publisher.
If you would like to view/ consult this item, please submit an online request or contact the staff of the Special Collections Reading Room in the Hardiman Research Building at specialcollections@nuigalway.ie.
