About this Item: Simon & Schuster, New York, 1937. Cloth. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. Hendrik Willem Van Loon (Author and illustrator). First Edition. 677 pp. the Study of Painting and Sculpture and Architecture and Music as well as the so-called Minor Arts from the days of the caveman until the present time. Publisher's original red cloth with gilt lettering and emblem, illustration pasted on the spine, illustrated end papers and top edge is black. Unusual dust jacket that is double the size then folded in half. When opened up there is an illustrated chart of Art Through The Ages. Price is intact on the dust jacket back flap.
The brown wrapper is the way I received it and is why the original red binding is in such great condition. I thought the brown wrapping was very unusual in the way it was cut and applied along with the original owners name hidden inside, so I left it on and will go along with it to the new owner.
