Beautiful displays, deeper coverage than I expected, given the breadth of the material, insightful historical context. It's not for those who want to learn a new style, but for those who want to appreciate the craft as observers or practitioners. You'll learn interesting answers to questions you didn't know enough to ask, and you will take something valuable away when you're done.
