This is a comprehensive set of reference books on a wide range of bronzes produced in the 19th and early 20th century. They include fewer of the best-known works - for which there are many specialist books - but numerous lesser known bronzes which could not be easily found elsewhere - which makes them especially useful for tracking down the bronzes that only appear from time to time. If you buy the full set, be sure to buy one including the Master Index - or buy one separately to add to the set. It's only a stapled booklet, but it makes searching a lot easier.
