This pretty art history book from 1924 only set me back a few cents at a book sale.
I love the classical appearance created by the olive green, gold text, and gold seal.
It covers the origins of art to the art of the 19th Century.
Sidenote: something I love about old books is the potential for unexpected bookmarks. This recipe for "Dandy Candy"(on a strawberry card no less!) fell out of the index and made me chuckle.
