Offered is the complete artist reference set, this particular edition consisting of 8 volumes, formally titled "Dictionnaire de Peintres", the now famous, almost iconic creation of French artist E. Charles Benezit. The single word "Benezit" is in common, casual use today by those in the art community who discuss where an artist is "listed". The internet and all its resources notwithstanding, "Benezit" remains an old classic standby reference work. The first edition was published in 1949...

Found in New Hampshire, this is a beautifully and meticulously drawn map of the South American continent, from the Isthmus of Panama to Cape Horn, signed at lower right one "Rosa W.

Lower Paleolithic mode 2 biface axe. Flint, well patinated with calcium deposits and in excellent condition. Legal surface find from the village of Abilly, France. 5 3/8"x 2 1/2". The typology of this particular biface is difficult to pin down. Though it does bear resemblance to a Micoquien Fieron, it would in all probability generally be put into the category of a "core like biface", which is sort of a catch-all group for mode 2 tools which don't really fit any place else. Probable dating ...

There is one ancient chip missing, the gap totally patinated, and as this is on the distal end it is indicative of having occurred early on during use. Dates to approx. 650,000 BCE.

Mode I lower Paleolithic pebble chopper on a flint nodule. Excellent condition with semi-glossy ground patina, 3 1/2"x 2 3/4". Ex. collection Hermann Mayer, Germany. A lovely Clactonian pebble chopper. These are rare tools, and in my experience, this particular typology is more indicative of Homo Erectus than Homo Heidelbergensis. Lovely caramel colored flint from the Grand-Pressigny region in France. Dates to approx. 650,000 BCE.
