Full Description

Large folio. 33 + (3)pp, 145 photo ills. Publisher’s cloth.

First edition of this fine Phaidon volume devoted to the sculptures of Michelangelo (published under the imprint of George Allen & Unwin, but only because the Phaidon Press had not yet been re-established in Britain after being compelled to leave Vienna). It contains a detailed scholarly text supplied by Goldscheider and evocative photographs of the sculptures. Subsequent Phaidon editions followed.
