See the description below from the dustwrapper flap. The author was Director of the National Gallery in London between 1973 and 1986.
Despite the book weighing over a kilo and a half, it was also published in paperback, though quite how long such a paperback would survive we hesitate to suggest. At any rate, very few copies of this hardback edition appear to have been printed, and all editions are now out of print.
Beware – this is a large and heavy book and would cost a fortune to send abroad. If you are outside the U.K. and are thinking about buying it, please email us first on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will quote a price for postage.
