New York 1984 Hard Cover First Edition Collectible-Fine. No Dust Jacket Blue Cloth Covered Boards. 8vo-over 7?"-9?" tall. Two Volume Set. This is Yeldham's Ph.d. thesis
(sponsored by The Courtauld Institute of Art). "Women Artists in Nineteenth Century France and England: Their Art Education, Exhibition Opportunities and Membership of Exhibiting Societies and Academies, with an Assessment of the Subject-Matter of Their Work and Summary Biographies." Vol. One is about two-thirds text, the remainder notes and bibliography. Vol. Two is comprised of notes and several b&w reproductions of artwork. This work is actually a very interesting portrait of the rise of female artists, improved educational opportunities, attitudes towards them (not all negative! ), etc., written in a quite readable style that is not at all pedantic. A wonderful set!
