4to. 3 vols in publisher’s slipcase, still in original box. 796pp. 712 b/w and 17 colour illustrations throughout the three volumes. All three volumes and the slipcase are as new, having never been removed from the box. The only fault to find is with the box, which has accumulated a little dust over the years and has a few scuff masks here and there. HEAVY item. Estimate 5kg PLUS – postage will have to be adjusted accordingly. A comprehensive account of Florentine sculpture of the 15th century. The text should be commended for its unprecedented breadth; full of new proposals, unpublished works, accompanying biographies and detailed lists of the works of a large number of sculptors. Entire text in Italian. Scarce to find in the UK, particularly in this condition.
