Rare catalog of the paintings and sketches prepared in the summer of 1926 during a journey Lanceray undertook for the State Museum of Armenia. Lanceray (Evgenii Lansere, 1875-1946) relocated to Georgia with his family in 1920, returning to Moscow only in 1934. In the interim, he conducted numerous expeditions throughout Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan and highland Dagestan, with lengthy work trips to Zangezur, Svaneti, and Dagestan.

One of 300 copies printed.

As of October 2021, not in KVK, OCLC. We are aware of a Russian-language version of this catalog printed at Erevan in the same year, but neither edition is traceable in Western libraries.
