This gorgeous book was translated from the French (Dictionnaire de la Peinture Moderne) in 1956 and this is the English edition, published by Methuen that year. It is a cloth bound hardcover with colour reproductions, that starts with A for Abstract Art and finishes up with Z for Zola. The cover is a little ripped, but it is covered in plastic that feels to me as if it is the special book covering (non acidic) plastic. Buy this from me quickly, it runs the risk of becoming a well used reference in my own home.
