One of The Smithsonian Illustrated Library of Antiques. The author, founder and director of the Museum of Graphic Arts in New York, presents a survey of the subjects chosen by various printmakers, rather than the usual history of printmaking. Thus, the prints are presented in context of subject rather than chronological order. A chapter on the techniques of printmaking, and advice for print collectors, including a glossary of special terms, reading list and a guide to public collections of prints add to the value of this volume. 138 plates, 30 in color.
