ARTS AND CRAFTS
A curiously difficult book to find. There was a copy on ABE at $1600 from a notorious venturesome re-lister which is hard to imagine sold but ain't there any more, but certainly a decent copy would command a pretty penny.Well illustrated, quarto, 320 pages. The author (son of artist Norman), in a communication with us, hoped that CUP would republish it and said he had done the occasional xerox of the book for friends. He was flabbergasted by the dealers price. His more recent 'Compleat Marble Sleuth' covers some of the same territory and can be found for $90 or less. I believe I have a copy. [Want level 25-50]
