4to. Original blue boards. With the dust jacket. 304pp. Illustrated throughout. The book is as new, no faults to speak of. First edition, first impression. In this absorbing study, Victoria Newhouse examines the charged zone where spectator and art objects meet. Long neglected by art books and museum catalogs, Newhouse posits that the link between presentation and art is critical to the understanding of any such objects. An extensive and convincing work, scarce to find in the UK and in excellent condition.
