Hugh Honour (born 26 September 1927) is a British art historian, famous for his writing partnership with John Fleming.

"Kenneth Clark: This book is a fabulous piece of work. The two compilers are well-known art historians, but the amount of labor that must have gone into this compilation shows a degree of applied learning that is really amazing. Even a more or less specialist reader will find something that is new to him on every page. Moreover, the entries are written so concisely and intelligently that they van be read for pleasure for their own sakes. This cannot be said for many books of reference and it is a mark of the unusual intelligence with which the whole work has been done."

"John Pope-Hennessy: On many different levels this is a truly invaluable book. In no other volume will collectors, dealers in antiques and the host of people who wonder why objects were made, by whom and how, find answers to all their enquirers. At once informative, accurate, and readable, it is an indispensable addition to every art library."

Dust jacket is worn at edges with small chips and creases. Minor shelf wear overall (front/back)
Cover is very good to fine - exceptional deep rich cloth with gold gilting on cover and spine.
Minor discoloration at the very top edges of boards from age. Pages are exceptionally clean and book overall is in lightly read condition. Fore edges are heavily foxed, though this does not affect the pages more than 3 cm.

*Dust Jacket in Brodart Cover (not pictured)
