Inscribed by Dodd, Mead & Co. on the ffep! Extremely scarce and wonderfully collectible and well-preserved! 366 unmarked and uncreased historical pages of text and 48 wonderful pages of historic black and white plates! Inscription on the ffep reads: "From Dodd, Mead & Co. New York Dec. 25 1902" Very very rare! "In making a second collection of masterpieces of paintings that have given pleasure and afforded inspiration to many generations of mankind, I have endeavoured to represent several great painters who did not appear in my former volume, of which this is, in some measure, a continuation. Crivelli, Luini, Giorgione, Moroni, Landseer, Mantegna and Perugino are among those who were left out of Great Pictures for lack of space. Even now, looking at the two volumes together, many favourite pictures will be missed; but it must be remembered how impossible it is to include within the limits of two small books every work that justly holds a firm place in the affections of all who love and reverence great art." ---- from the Preface Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall.
