The Picturesque - Studies in a Point of View
Hussey, Christopher

Frank Cass and Company Limited, London, 1983 (Third Impression). Secondhand wear to dustjacket, including small chips/tears at spine extremities; tear (5 cm) with bottom of back cover with flap (repaired internally with brown paper.

When first published (1967), this now well-known study was regarded as something of a pioneering venture in the field of visual romanticism. Despite susbsequent works on the various aspects of this subject, The Picturesque has always remained the most informative and illuminating historical introduction to the study of visual values as reflected in English literature, painting and lanscaping at the turn of the eighteeth and nineteenth centuries.
