Prepared by a noted French historian, it ventures into virtually all of the classical arts, with 375 high-quality black-and-white illustrations derived from paintings, illuminated manuscripts, sculpture, and architecture, as well as a vast body of literature that includes many rare and beautiful manuscripts from private collections.
