376 pages; 208 illustrations. A classic, the author assumes "absolute ignorance on the part of the reader", so explains everything, from plates to restoration and mildew. The many illustrations are oftrn accompanied by notes of the artist, such as "I use zinc rarely; copper usually". The boards are worn, especially the spine, worn and faded. The front hinge is cracked at the endpapers, the cords and mull bind the book. Text and paltes are clean, unmarked and whole. The back endpapers have extensive penciled notes.
