This collection of scholarly articles traces the history of book illustration from its first notion in cave art to the early 20th century. It is arranged chronologically with the first section covering the beginning of illustration; the second moves from the illuminated manuscript to the advent of printing; the third and fourth takes the reader from the earliest woodcut illustrations to the beginning of the 20th century; and the final part is concerned with children's books. An annotated bibliography follows which will lead the reader to additional delights and discoveries. The contributors are distinguished art historians as well as well known anthropologists, members of Classics and English departments, librarians, historians, and educators. The contributions have been chosen to cover areas, points, or ideas not generally covered in the basic histories of illustration. Other criteria for inclusion have been the readable style of the author, offering of new insights into the subject, and current reporting on the field. All the articles chosen are in English. Black and white illustrations are provided to support the authors' presentations.

...will be useful for student librarians and in history of the book courses. * PBSA * I highly recommend this excellent reader for every art library, and I recommend it to art librarians-there are wonderful revelations in it for us. * Susan G. Swartzburg, Rutgers University * This doesn't mimic competitors: it covers angles not surveyed elsewhere and holds special chapters on children's illustration and illuminated manuscripts as well as unique, varied discussions by a variety of contributors. * The Bookwatch * ...a wonderful smorgasbord of articles that reflects the pleasant eccentricity of the editor, Bill Katz...I highly recommend this book not only to those interested in book illustration but to people who have a general interest in the history and development of the book. * Epilogue * ...extensive documentation accompanying the discussions adds detail, a sense of the scope of scholarship in an area, and a multitude of "leads" for further exploration...a very interesting, highly informative, and easy read. The level of the scholarship is first-rate and the papers are well-written. A reader can spend a considerable amount of time studying the large number of illustrations, especially in the context of the "reading instructions" given in the accompanying texts. I believe that, for anyone with an interest in illustration and books, this book promises both profit and delight. * Analytical and Enumerative Bibliography *
