Title: Koninklijke Begeer Voorschoten. Catalogus No. 7. 1935 van medailles plaquettes sportprijzen.
Description: Voorschoten, Koninklijke Begeer, 1935. 44 pp. B./w (& monochrome ills.) & photographs (by Zwart?). Original half cloth with decorated metallic stiff paper wrappers. - Front and back cover with some creasing along the extremities. Due to the experimental design (by Zwart) of inter-leaving full-pages with half pages, an (intentional) crease developed vertical along the front and back-cover (the brands logo was positioned as such that this fold runs nicely through the logo and not through the lettering). Some minor scratches (not affecting the design). * Very interesting catalogue designed by Piet Zwart resembling his graphical designs for Bruynzeel and Nederlandse Kabel Fabrikanten (NKF), but applied to a very obscure and very un-well-known sales-catalogue for Koninklijke Begeer. He is credited in the colophon. Although the title mentions that this was no. 7 of a series, no other volumes are known to have actually have been published. Thus this seems the only collaboration of Piet Zwart for Koninklijke Begeer (a manufacturer of medails, plaques, cups and other silver-items). Very rare: only three copies known in public collections.
