Summary
The newly designed 16th edition invites a new generation to the immense pleasures of the author's lucid and accessible writing about art history. This is the paper text edition of the classic work (cited in BCL3 ), first published in 1950 and updated and reprinted extensively since then. ( Books in Print shows that the 16th is also published in a paper trade edition distributed by Chronicle Books; Phaidon Press Ltd. holds the copyright.) Contains numerous color plates.
