RARE Abel Pann 1st Ed "The Bible, Genesis" 1924 Israel Lithographs Portfolio

Description : Abel Pann's first edition portfolio of Biblical lithographs, "The Bible, Genesis: From the Creation until the Deluge", published in Jerusalem in 1924 by The Palestine Art Publishing Company Jerusalem (established by Abel Pann).

As nobody there was familiar with the art of lithography Pann took it upon himself to be both artist and printer. For more information about the artist visit: /wiki/Abel_Pann
