A beautiful edition, detailing the work and life of Spanish painter and satirist Francisco Goya, considered the most important Spanish painter of the 18th and early 19th century. Inscribed to Captain R. Grace White, from a Portuguese book collector (unable to decipher name): White was the American commander of the SS Imperatoran ocean liner built for the Hamburg America Line, launched in 1912. Although in German and English all ships are usually referred to as feminine, during his Hamburg American Line career, the ship was referred to as masculine at the special request of Kaiser Wilhelm II. When the SS Imperator made its maiden voyage in June of 1913, it was the largest passenger ship in the world. (Picture included in photos!)
