1 Abse, Joan The Art Galleries of Britain and Ireland - A Guide to Their Collections
London Sidgwick and Jackson 1975 0283981423 / 9780283981425 First Edition Hard Cover Near Fine Near Fine 
A very clean and unmarked copy which has dust marking to top edge with dustjacket which has a protective cover. 248 pages. 19 illustrations. At present no guide exists which is exclusively devoted to describing the wealth of art that hangs in the numerous galleries of this country. Joan Abse's book is designed to fill this gap. Her unique guide contains an account of the permanent collections of paintings in British public galleries together with descriptions of the pictures in the royal collection and in university galleries which are normally available to public view. Most entries consist of a brief account of the gallery itself, its history and architecture, followed by notes on the major works of art, listed, as far as possible, according to place and time of origin. Minor works and painters, often the source of much pleasure, are not neglected and reference is made to other items of interest in the gallery.
