Possibly the definitive and surely an indispensable reference book on its rich, diverse, and fascinating subject. A "must-have" title for all art history collectors. This title has been out-of-print as a hardcover for a very long time and is now highly collectible. It quickly went into multiple subsequent printings, including a Second Edition that is dated 2001. This is one of relatively few copies of the First Revised and Expanded Edition (1999) still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A very scarce copy thus. Lavishly illustrated on every page with photographs of sites, works, artists, and other pertinent visual aids. Hundreds of black-and-white and color reproductions and illustrations. A flawless collectible copy. . ISBN 0810906104. $150.00
