Description:

1st Printing. 1312 pages. Published in 1999. Revised And Expanded Edition of the modern classic. Massive and ambitious history of art in two volumes. The First Edition Thus. Published in a very small and limited print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now rare. A stupendous new production by Harry N. Abrams: Mustard cloth boards with titles embossed on spine, as issued. Art by various contributors 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 Marilyn Stokstad's "Art History". Perhaps the best book on its subject, and the only one you will ever need for 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 about painting, sculpture, architectural designs and drawings, photographs, works in metal, ceramics, and textiles, among many other works and media, in an accessible manner. Possibly the definitive, and surely an indispensable, reference book on its rich, diverse, and fascinating subject. An absolute "must-have" title for art history book collectors. This title is a contemporary art book classic. As huge and expensively produced a set that it is, it quickly went into subsequent printings, including a Second Edition that is dated 2001. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the First Revised and Expanded Edition/First Printing (1999) available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare copy thus. 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. Bookseller Inventory # 2313
