Small 4to. 502pp. Black cloth hardcover with gilt lettering to the spine, wrapped in a jacket illustrated with Visscher’s image of Europa. Lovingly illustrated with 33 colour plates, as well as numerous in-text monochrome illustrations. Condition would be near-fine were it not for some very minor shelf-wear. In ‘Image of Europe’, renowned historian Michael Wintle has dedicated himself to a thought-provoking study of Europe’s manifold representations throughout history; including but not limited to maps, icons, the arts and graphic images of all kinds. A superb feat of academia, as extensive and thorough as one has come to expect from the Cambridge University Press.
