16 The Art of Florence [2 Volume set]
Andres, Glenn M. ; Hunisak, John M. ; Turner, A. Richard ; with principal photography by Takashi Okamura Artabras | Abbeville Publishing [c. 1994] 1994 0896601110 / 9780896601116 Hardcover Fine Slipcase Fine Book Folio - over 12 - 15" tall 
2 volumes in slipcase. Both volumes and the slipcase are in excellent, fine condition. Beautifully illustrated throughout. More than 700 color images and another 854 duotones and architectural drawings have been reproduced with a meticulous care worthy of the Renaissance craft tradition. 1312 pages. This important and uncommonly beautiful publication analyzes the history of Florentine art in terms of the distinctly Florentine and Tuscan influences that shaped it-an approach never before employed in a study of this breadth and complexity. The fascinating and lucid text by Glenn Andres, John Hunisak, and Richard Turner gracefully links Florentine architecture, sculpture, and painting to the rich social fabric and the dramatic political life of the city. Woven into this compelling history is the most luxurious and comprehensive visual documentation available of Florence's unrivaled treasures. n.d. but this copy is a c. 1994 printing.
