Bode, Wilhelm.
The Italian Bronze Statuettes of the Renaissance.

New York M.A.S. de Reinis: 1980. Revised edition.

Originally published in several volumes in a very limited edition in 1907 and 1912, Bode's masterpiece is reissued here with a new index and extensive prefatory material by James David Draper. Wilhelm Bode, General Director of the Royal Museums in Berlin, was -the- authority on Italian Renaissance statuettes in his era, and Draper notes that, in spite of its age and inevitable defects, "the book's wealth of illustrations has continued to make it indispensable -the mainstay of curators, collectors, dealers and scholars in general".

Hardcover. 10.5"x14", 111 pages with 102 black & white illustrations, plus 266 black & white plates. With the errata sheet. Fine.
