Pour la première fois, depuis près de cinq cents ans, se trouvèrent rassemblées des pièces de toutes techniques, jusque-là disséminées au hasard des trésors et des collections de l’ancien et du nouveau monde. Celles que reproduisent les planches de cet album figurèrent toutes à l’exposition de 1931’ (introduction).
