Excerpt from Catalogue of a Collection of Oriental Art Objects
N bringing together the collection of Oriental 1 art objects herein catalogued, I have followed the elevating and admirable example set by Baltimore's great connoisseur, Mr. William Thompson Walters, whose magnifi... cent collection has strongly in¿uenced and inspired me. At the outset of my efforts, I was fortunate in securing many specimens from the Brinkley collection, then being dispersed in New York. To this nucleus I have since been adding, my aim being to make a collection of beautiful art objects, so long as they are made in strict accordance with Oriental tastes, rather than the quaint and curi ous. I am now happy to submit to my fellow art-lovers, and those interested in the fascinating study of Oriental Art, the results of my efforts.
