"Art and Artists of All Nations: Over Four Hundred Photographic Reproductions of Great Paintings"overseen and edited by Angelo Del Nero and others, published by Knight and Brown, 1898.
Very large book, 14 inches long by 11 inches tall with 400 pages. Gilt edges, fully illustrated. The original full leather binding was repaired at some point, the spine has new material and the front and rear hinges have been strengthened.
There is some chipping and wear to the original leather, especially to the lower portion of the front cover. Pages near the front and back of the text block show the most wear at the edges, interior portion is generally clean. Binding looks to be holding tight.
This a large and heavy book, so there will be no international or expedited shipping available.
