In two volumes. Edited by Fred. A. Eaton, M.A. Oxon. With portraits and illustrations. First English edition, 1882. Hardback. 8vo. Vol. I: xiii, 376pp, 24 illustrations; Vol. II: vii, 347pp, 32 illustrations. Dark red boards with elaborate gilt illustration to upper boards and gilt titles to spines. No jackets. Thausig's extensive and scholarly work on Durer has probably only been surpassed in breadth and scope by that of Erwin Panofski. It is still a very useful source for any student of Durer and the art of his time. Both volumes in good condition but have obviously been much used. Boards generally a little rubbed and soiled. Volume I lower board is the most rubbed and soiled. Both upper boards and their gilt decoration are still quite bright. Corners all a little bumped. Spines somewhat faded with wear and fraying at extremities. Text block edges a little dust soiled. Internally both volumes have some sporadic cracking at gutters but text blocks are still sound with all pages firmly holding in place. Volume I has lost the tissue guard to its frontispiece. Very little spotting and this mostly limited to free endpapers. A very usable pair of volumes with all pages and illustrations present and correct.
