Benesch, Otto.
Artistic and Intellectual Trends from Rubens to Daumier, as Shown in Book Illustration.

New York Walker and Company, in association with The Department of Printing and Graphic Arts, Harvard College Library: 1969. 2nd edition.

"The history of the illustrated book constitutes a chapter in the development of the graphic arts to which many lovers and even connoisseurs of prints give less attention than it merits. Regular visitors who enjoy the treasures of the Print Rooms are often unaware that within the covers of the silent, endless rows of books their favourite masters are represented in illustration and ornament". First published in 1943, this respected study comprises the revised text of a series of lectures given in 1942 to the Friends of the Harvard Library.

Hardcover. 7"x10", xvi + 91 pages, plus 66 b/w plates near fine.
