Review:

'Sumptuously produced ... constitutes a wonderful and enjoyable home reference and study aid ... Thames & Hudson render a real service to the general public in pricing books so modestly.' --Historical Association

'Expert text, gorgeous design and shrewdly arranged pictures add up to the kind of accessibly erudite package that T&H does so peerlessly'
--The Independent
