About this Item

Dust jacket is quite worn at edges with some delamination, otherwise very bright with detail of the head of Flora from Botticelli's "Primavera.". Solid black front end page has initals written in black felt pen. Grey cloth cover boards with gold embossed lettering, does not have any edge wear or flaws. Printed in West Germany, the pages are nice to the touch and are beautifully tanned. There are 600 illustrations - 180 in full color, 420 photographs, woodcuts, drawings and maps, including, in addition to the great masterpieces, countless little-known contemporary manuscript illuminations, paintings, sculpture, and works of architecture chosen not only for their beauty, but for their meaning. Twelve distinguished authorities, writing as a team, have condensed a vast amount of information into a lucid and readable narrative, that charts the growth and meaning of the Renaissance, the turning point of modern history from 1400 - 1600. All the artwork reproductions are very clear showing great detail, some fold-out. 10.5 x 14" 359 Pgs 2.7 Kg. Bookseller Inventory # 31869
