Quantity: 1 available

Book Condition: Fine


Crisp, beautiful book with no names or writing and no bumps to boards. Pages and page edges are pristine. Dustjacket is likewise nice with no tears or chips and no price-clip. Only fault is a small light stain to title box on front cover. Looks most handsome in brand new mylar cover. Book was translated from the Italian and is illustrated plentifully with color images and black and white drawings throughout. The subject is Giambattista Tiepolo, noted for his thirty three bizarre etchings. Most authors have declined to take them on, but Calasso made each one the subject of his book. The topics include blooming ephebes, female satyrs, Oriental sages, owls, snakes, death, time, numerous angels and more. 288 pages. Beautiful prose in English.
