Greek Bronzes and Greek Terracotta Statuettes

£14.99

Product description

Two works bound as one.

Taken from the Greek Terracotta Statuettes Preface:
"It may be said of a certain number of Greek terracottas that they do not need much explanation. If a statuette is charming in its expression, its pose, and its costume, that was about all it was meant to be. Or if we meet a figure taken from common life, such as an old nurse with a child on her lap. and are amused by it, that again was about all it was meant to be. Only, what we admire through an acquired taste, the old Greeks for whom these things were made admired instinctively. The terracottas of that class reflected the daily life the Greeks, refined upon just enough to gratify the average household tastes of the time."

Numerous illustrations including 8 colour plates. Gilt spine titles, burgundy cloth stamped in gilt, top edge gilt, other edges uncut.

CONDITION: Some tissue guards and plates show foxing, otherwise clean, sound pages with foxing confined mainly to page edges and end-papers. Some minor scuffs to boards and slight fading to spine. No inscriptions or notations.
