Lavin, Irving

New York & London Pierpont Morgan Library / Oxford University Press 1980 First ed. 2 quartos (oversized). Slight wear to edges and corners of boards, just a bit more to dust jackets. Printed by the Stinehour Press, an American fine press firm. Text vol. : 255 p. w/ footnotes, catalogue, appendices, bibliography, indices. Plate vol. : 294 plates on unnumbered pages. Irving puts forth his contention that Bernini's strength was his abilty to combine sculputre, painting, and archetecture into a unified concept and space. An important work on this 17th c. artist and archtect. Very good Hardcover (Item ID: 17356)
