Title: The Arts
Description: NY: Simon & Schuster, 1946. First Edition Thus. Eleventh Printing. Hard Cover. Illustrated by Hendrik Willem Van Loon. Publisher's full red cloth, gilt lettering on spine, color illustration on label on spine, gilt medallion on cover. 8vo. 677, (1) pp. Illustrated with 72 in text drawings and 80 full page illustrations in color & wash, all by Van Loon. This is a very clean copy, tight and square, with a former owner's signature on the ffep, and a lightly sunned spine, else fine. VERY GOOD. In 63 chapters, Van Loon discusses the history of art, from Prehistoric man through the art of Claude Debussy. Van Loon's idiosyncratic style takes the reader from the painter's studio into the study of the composer. It took Hendrik van Loon 30 years to learn enough to write The Arts, and then it took him 10 years to write it. The result is a book that cannot be duplicated anywhere in any language: a book about all the arts for all the people. His most ambitious work, it will probably prove the author's most useful one.. 8vo 8" - 9" tall. xxiii, 677, (2) pp. Very Good+ with no dust jacket .
