Die Monogrammisten [und diejenigen bekannten und unbekannten Künstler aller Schulen, welche sich zur Bezeichnung ihrer Werke eines figürlichen Zeichens, der Initialen des Namens, der Abbreviatur desselben etc. bedient haben] (5 Vols.)
[Fotomechanische herdruk van de uitgave München, Georg Franz, 1858-1879]
Georg K. Nagler
An unsurpassed reference work of permanent value, to identify artists who sign themselves only by their monogram or similar device. Literally thousands of them were book illustrators, hence the work's importance for books. Nagler begins by giving an exact facsimile of the monogram(s); this is followed by the artist's name, his biography and then a list of his works, frequently including a complete bibliography of books illustrated by him. Arrangement is alphabetical. The total number of main entries is 14.961; the number of monogram facsimiles must be well over 30.000.
