A comprehensive reference work for print and art collectors, dealers in prints and illustrated books and people interested in graphic art with no previous knowledge on the subject. It was the result of Bamber Gascoigne's own early experiences in trying to discover which print was what. Looking for precise guidance on problems of identification, he found that there was no book specifically designed to answer that need - so he wrote it.
