Cloth, paper spine-label, 8vo, 26 cm, 237 pp, ills, portraits. Identical (apart from the publisher details) to the English edition published by Scolar Press. From the blurb: " 'Francis Barlow' is the first substantial study of the greatest English book illustrator before Blake. It sets Barlow, best known for his much prized sporting and animal pictures, firmly in the artistic and historical context of the seventeenth century. Dr. Hodnett chronicles the development of English illustrated books from the time of Caxton, and surveys in detail the seminal work of Gheeraerts the Elder, Cleyn, and Barlow's friend and collaborator Wenceslaus Hollar. He analyses in depth Barlow's visual realisations of the written word, and examines his entire body of interpretive illustrations. Dr. Hodnett concentrates especially on Barlow's contributions to the mystical Theophila and on his sparkling re-interpretations of Aesopic fables. " Very Good in slightly used dustwrapper. Errata slip tipped in at end. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE-39108
