Full Description

4to. 33 + (1)pp, 178 photo plates. Pub boards, cloth spine. No ownership inscription, but Wolfgang Herrmann’s copy.

This catalogues and illustrates no fewer than 178 examples of French and German figure sculpture of the late middle ages then in private collections in Frankfurt, presumably now widely dispersed. The foreword is by Swarzenski, who may also have been responsible for the dating and regional attribution of each item.
