One of the great achievements of the Victorian period was the collation and classification of factual information. This superb dictionary is a highpoint of this process.
Originally published in 1883, J. W. Mollett’s dictionary contains a wide variety of entries from engineering, architecture and textiles to metalwork, sculpture, fine art and various forms of ornament, including information from India, China and Japan. Exquisite line engravings complement a wide ranging and authoritative text.
For the enthusiast of nineteenth-century visual production the Dictionary of Art and Archaeology is an essential document, coinciding as it does with the first stirrings of Modern Art in France and the Arts and Crafts Movement in Britain.
