Seller Comments:

Umberto Eco's first illustrated book...and it is HIGHLY illustrated. "Professor Eco here takes us step by step through many historical eras, from Classical Antiquity to the present day, dispelling many preconceptions along the way and concluding the the relevance of his research is urgent because we live in an age of great reverence for beauty, 'an orgy of tolerance, the total syncretism and the absolute ad unstoppable polytheism of Beauty. '" (dj) White cloth, blue & color illus. dust jacket, 438 pp., many color illus.; weighs 3 lbs.
