About this Item

Beautiful blck full cloth boards, blind-stamp border, silver cover and spine titles, slight corner wear. Coated silver endpages; slight flaw inside back cover. Pages very good w/ color photoplate section, de Hory line drawings throughout. Verso title page clipped. Dj moderate wear, rub; clipped. Very attractive, in protective sleeve. Astonishing and incredible-but-true story of the world's greatest art forger, who painted over a thousand brilliant fake canvasses worth at the time more than sixty million dollars in the 'inauthentic' market of fine art. Of notable influence, de Hory, would quite possibly be the inspiration for Clifford Irving's possibly even greater single hoax a few years later of the inauthentic autobiography of Howard Hughes. 243 pages. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 006591
