First Edition. Frontispiece, xlviii, 459 pp; illus.; Frontispiece, viii, 1 leaf, 541 pp; illus. Original plum cloth. Bookplate on front pastedown of each volume. In Vol. I, there is a half-inch vertical tear to the cloth near the head of the spine, and the rear joint is a bit worn in a few spots. Some faint mottling-type discoloration (not too severe) to an oval-shaped, central portion of rear cover. Vol. II is Very Good+. 'For English readers, the Life and Times of Titian by Crowe and Cavalcaselle (1877) superseded all previous works, such as those of Sir Abraham Hume (1829) and Northcote (1830)' (Classic Encyclopedia Web site). 'As a journalist and native English speaker, Crowe did all of the writing for the books. Cavalcaselle provided a knowledge of art and documents. Their art histories were the first written in English to make use of documentary evidence and research, rather than the hearsay mythology of much of 19th-century art writing. Their books went into numerous editions and are still considered an important part of the literature of art history. The popularity of their books was such that they were issued in German and Italian editions' (Dictionary of Art Historians Web site). '[T]he first major monograph on the artist' (Britannica Online Encyclopaedia). Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers TS0001
