Condition: Very Good Condition


Beaurtiful book of substantial measurements and weight. It's 9-1/4" across and 12" tall with 524 pages and no names or writing. Book is clean and nice with no spine crease and pristine pages and page edges. The only fault is small bit of wear to upper back corner around which is a bit of roughness which looks to me as though the top layer of the paper there was reglued. The book is illustrated profusely throughout, but the text is likewise ample. This is actually an art catalog published to accompany an exhibition which began at the Cleveland Museum of Art from Oct. 25, 2006 to Jan. 7, 2007 ... View more info
