Second edition – reprinted in 1991 after 25 years of the release of the first. Content and binding is by all accounts identical to the first. 2 vols, continuous pagination. Vol 1: xviii, 612pp. Vol 2: v, 613-836pp. Additionally, there are 192 b/w plates in volume 2. Both volumes have a red cloth binding w/a brown and gilt label on the spine. They are each housed in illustrated jackets. The condition of both volumes is very good. Beyond some light shelfwear to the top edges of both jackets and a mark on the bottom edge of each volume (presumably left over from the accumulation of dust), there really are no faults to speak of. The first volume makes up the text. Robertson traces the history of Greek art chapter by chapter, chronologically building from the ‘archaic period’, monumental sculpture and the ‘Daedalic style’, to a final consideration of the Greek tradition in the Roman Empire. The second volume serves the first with notes and accompanying images. Surely the authoritative text on the history of greek art. Scarce to find both volumes in such good condition. Combined weight of approx. 3.5kg – postage will have to be adjusted accordingly.
