Run, don’t walk. I’ve been trying to order this book for a year! I guess Amazon had several listings, I finally ran across this one that had no thumbnail yet said it was in stock.
It arrived today. Zoink! I had no idea! By the price ($32 discounted) I figured it was typical small format Taschen, but when it arrived Mr. Kallisti thought I had spent a fortune. 24358745 pound box. Double format, hard cover in slip case, huge. And omg, the photographs! First volume 18th-19th century, second is 20th. I’m just sayin’.
Only 4 left as of this morning.
