Gilt banding and compartments on the spine and covers. 584 pp. Black and white illustrations and plates throughout. All text in French. A biography and study of the life and art of Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres, a French Neoclassical painter known for his portraits using distorted space and form that served as a link to modern painting (Wikipedia). GOOD condition. Heavy scuffing and some gouging to the leather corners and along the spine. Minor darkening and fading. Light soiling. 2 plates (at pages 160 and 288) were detached and have been tipped in using archival glue.
