About This Item

This is a comprehensive reference book written for anyone interested in antiques. It was first written in 1973, by the art expert Sir John Pope-Hennessy, and published in the UK. It was then updated and published in the US. It is exhaustively researched and is a must-have for dealers, collectors, designers and art historians.

It is 5000 entries, in alphabetical order, plus maps, ceramic and silver marks, and 1000 photos.Every entry description is fact-based (no opinion). It begins with the Renaissance and ends at 1875, and includes silver, ceramics, jewelry, glass, furniture etc., and covers Europe, North America and the Orient.

There are no page numbers, but it weighs 4 lbs.
It is in mint condition, except that the dust jacket is quite loose-fitting, so someone taped it to the inside covers, then removed the tape.
Otherwise perfect, inside and out.
