The De Baye Collection 3626 to 3718 below, 1922,0601 series
Provenances given at the start of each of the appropriate geographical sections of this collection, at nos. 3626, 3637 and 3656 below
Purchased from Baron Joseph de Baye; Siberian material that formed a major part of the collection is in the Department of Oriental Antiquities
Provenance Perm obl., Russia; acquired 1895 with nos. 3657 to 3718 below (Register). The group was obtained during a trip in 1895 (detailed in de Baye 1896 and 1897) from Count Alexander Teploúkhov of Ilinsk (Il'inskiy), and originated from "explorations de gorodisches... dans la région de Solikamsk" (de Baye MS letter to Dalton, 2.4.1922); some may be doublets of, and one or two possibly identical with, those illustrated in Spitsyn 1902 (pls. I to XL; see especially nos. 3672-3673, 3678 and 3689-3690 below, all from Rozhdestvenskoie), who might also have drawn from photographs of pieces no longer there. Objects from the collection are published in Aspelin 1877 (nos. 649 to 715), with the identifying letters T.I., and the explanatory text (p. 398) makes it clear that some engravings were prepared from photographs on that occasion. The remainder of the collection appears now to be in Perm Regional Museum, where known as the Il'insky Collection; Talitskaya 1952 gives the history of finds on several of the sites
