All About History Review from previous edition [This] is a book that will not disappoint. Like the others in the series it combines the best scholarship in the field with lavish illustrations and photographs in colour and black and white throughout the text. The production values are high and the images are delight. Whether readers are well-versed in the field of Renaissance studies or simply have a casual interest in this fascinating subject, they will find much to enjoy.
Though the concepts discussed are far from simplistic, the tone is highly readable. This book will be a welcome addition to any library on the subject.
Ed Voves, Art Eyewitness Based on the latest historical research but aimed at the general reader, the Oxford "Illustrated's" have maintained a very high standard over the years. This volume, edited by the great Renaissance scholar, Gordon Campbell, certainly maintains the Oxford University Press reputation for excellence.
