"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Despite a title that would imply otherwise, this revised and expanded edition of the Dictionary of the Decorative Arts ( LJ 9/15/77) remains principally a guide to the decorative arts of Western Europe and North America from the Middle Ages to the present. Still, the volume has taken on a somewhat more international tone, with stronger sensitivity to the decorative traditions of Asia and the Americas demonstrated by new entries on African pottery, on the Crafts Revival, and on Peruvian textiles, for example. The authors have revised (and in some instances completely rewritten) the original text and have added some 600 new subject entries and 67 new color plates. Entries are concise and in many cases include recent bibliographical references as well as references to related topics covered elsewhere in the book. Highly recommended for academic and large public libraries.
