Each etching is signed by the artist (Ph.Z.) and the coloured are signed (Ph. Zilcken). All protected by a tissue guard. Four queries (pp. 5-20) starting to loosen. Original printed wrappers housed in a slipcase. From an edition of 120 this is one of only 8 copies on Japon with a suite of etchings coloured by the artist (aquarelles). This is number 3 of the 8 copies. A few leaves with small marginal stain but overall a lovely copy of a very attractive work. A beautiful collection of etchings depicting views, landscapes, houses, and people of Algeria. Philippe Zilcken (1857-1930) was a Dutch printmaker, painter and writer. He was taught by Klinkenberg and Anton Mauve at the Drawing Academy in the Hague. As a graphic artist Zilcken achieved considerable fame, especially through his reproduction etchings of works by 17th century masters as Vermeer. He made several travels to Algeria and Egypt. An interesting introduction by Léonce Bénédite who highly praises the work.
