Blochet, E. Miniatures Persanes et Indo-Persanes. Collection Jean Pozzi. Paris 1930
First edition Folio, pp.177, 65 plates, 9 in colour, original suede portfolio. A very good copy.

Jean Pozzi, a French diplomat and specialist on relations between his country and the Turkish Empire, was one of the great collectors of Persian and Indian painting in the early part of the twentieth century. This scarce catalogue was privately published for his friends, and never offered for sale.
