DJ edgeworn & chipping, a few sm tears archivally repaired, price-clipped.

550 pp. Profuse photos & illus. Foreword by Grayson L. Kirk. "Kouwenhoven's superb text is presented in two different dimensions: for those who read but must also run, there is the commentary that follows across the top of each page, telling about the attitudes and personality of each period considered in the pictures below. For the more leisurely reader there are the highly informative, thorough captions to the pictures themselves that tell when, where, how, and why they were made." General and street indexes. An incredibly vast volume.    [Book ID # 1088]
