Used, good condition, hard cover with plastic protective dust jacket, published 1962.
Theodore Spicer-Simson was a sculptor-artist of great versatility, an Englishman who lived and worked in Paris, London and the United States, whose chief interest, as an artist, was human character. For more than fifty years, distinguished men and women of many countries sat to him for their portraits, in marble and in bronze. He revived the ancient and almost forgotten art of the portrait medallion, working his subtle character interpretations in enduring metal. This book contains the story if his life in art as he wrote it, simply and directly, and his searching thoughts and memorable sayings about art. It presents a great array of his imperishable portraits, chiefly as bronze medallions.
The plastic outer protective dust jacket has a few nicks on the edge of the spine and two creases on the back. The inner paper dust jacket has a small tear to the bottom front corner but otherwise has been well protected by the plastic cover. The hard cover is in very good condition with just very slight bumping to the top and bottom of the spine and the corners. There are a few dark spots along the edges of the pages (not really enough to be considered foxing), otherwise all the pages are clean and unmarked.
