First Edition/First Printing. 1312 pages. Revised And Expanded Edition of the modern classic. Massive and ambitious history of art in two volumes. The First Edition Thus. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. As huge and expensively produced a set that it is, it quickly went into subsequent printing, particularly a Second Edition in 2001. Published in a small and limited first print run as a slipcased hardcover original only. The First Edition Thus is now rare. A stupendous production by Harry N. Abrams: Oversize-volume format. The set weighs 20 pounds. Mustard cloth boards with titles embossed on spine, as issued. Art by various artists throughout the ages. Edited by Marilyn Stokstad. Essays by various art expert/scholars. Special Sections on the varieties of artistic techniques. Pictorial slipcase. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ's, as issued. Presents, in its Revised Hardcover Edition, Marilyn Stokstad's "Art History". The best book on its subject, and the only one you will ever need for both reference and reading pleasure. Traces the beginnings, evolution, and rise of the arts in all world civilizations. This is a complete and comprehensive history, covering the Western tradition as well as the cultures of the Middle East, South Asia, East Asia, Africa, the Pacific Islands, and the Americas. Written by a team of experts writing in an accessible manner about painting, sculpture, architectural designs and drawings, photographs, works in metal, ceramics, and textiles, among many other works and media. Possibly the definitive, and surely an indispensable, reference book on its rich, diverse, and fascinating subject. An absolute "must-have" title for art book collectors. <b><i> This title is a contemporary art book classic. This is one of few copies of the First Revised And Expanded Edition/First Printing (1999) still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies available online have very serious flaws, are susbequent printings, or are remainder-marked. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare copy thus. </b></i> Lavishly illustrated on every page with photographs of sites, works, artists, and other pertinent visual aids. Hundreds of black-and-white and color reproductions and illustrations. A fine collectible copy. . ISBN 0810906104.

We specialize in modern firsts, photography, the arts, and erotica. You will also find a fine selection of signed copies, limited editions, and memorabilia because our ultimate goal is to deepen the pleasure of collecting books. We carry titles that we ourselves like and believe in -- books that we think will excite, enchant, and endure.
