These new features enrich the updated and reworked text and the 115 primary-source readings that are unique to History of Art.

The most thorough, cogent, and lavishly illustrated survey of art in the Western tradition, Janson's History of Art has now been completely redesigned and updated to make it the ultimate visually and intellectually exciting resource for today. Timelines; glossary; bibliography; index. 1,266 illustrations, more than 775 in full color.

    Highly Recommended- check it out!

    The book was shipped in a couple of days and it was in very good condition. It didnt have the front plastic casing, but it seemed to be untouched.
