Large very heavy quarto, cloth & dust jacket, two volumes, 465pp, printed on thick glossy acid-free paper, sewn signatures, with hundreds of illustrations many of which are full page and in color, including Renaissance paintings, old woodcuts, early printed books, charts and maps, plus a cloth portfolio of 20 rare Medieval and Renaissance broadsheets (posters) 11" x 8" suitable for framing, and a facsimile of a 17th century coin representing a legendary round shield from the sky, everything contained in a stout Saifu cloth slipcase, each copy signed and numbered by the authors, limited to 500 copies and never to be reprinted. This is entirely different from the 2010 Tarcher paperback edition, greatly revised and expanded. A gorgeous production of the highest quality, a rare blending of world-class scholarship and exceptional book arts. Great care has been taken to produce both a beautiful book and one that will last down through the ages.
