Twenty six large quarto volumes (12 3/8 x 10 in; 313 x 253 mm). Illustrations throughout, some in color.Original quarter blue cloth over gray printed boards. A very good set."The Walpole Society was formed in 1911, and was named after Horace Walpole (1717-1797), who published the first history of art in Britain, basing his work on the manuscript notebooks of George Vertue (1684-1756), which he had acquired. One of the first goals of the Society was to publish the notebooks in their original form, which included much material that Walpole omitted. This took up six volumes as well as an index volume, and was finally completed in 1950.
