From the dust jacket, "This is a feast of a book, a delight both to read and look at. But it is also a work of great depth and scholarship. It will become the standard reference book on the subject, and is fully equipped with an extensive bibliography, a list of artists named and an appendix on illustration techniques." A very fine, clean copy of an important work.
