About This Item

London: Unwin Hyman. Near Fine in Very Good dust jacket. 1987. First Edition. Hardcover. 0044400268 . Hardcover has light soiling outer edge of pages & a little light wrinkling first couple of pages. Interior is otherwise clean & unmarked. B/w photos. Jacket has light edgewear and scuffing, a little age tanning to edges, not price clipped. Said to be the most versatile forger of his or any other time, this is the story of Alceo Dossena and his creations in marble, bronze and terracotta which found themselves in America's most important museums. The story becomes a detective adventure in the world of art forgery. Despite an estimated $3 million for these works, Dossena when he died in 1937 was a poor man and in a charity hospital. ; 8vo .
