The essentials of physical and physiological optics are simply explained and illustrated, as are linear perspective, with reference to the historical development of the art of painting.
This is an ex-library book and may have the usual library/used-book markings inside. This book has hardback covers. In poor condition, suitable as a reading copy. No dust jacket., 850grams, ISBN: 0521076862.
This fascinating book shows how optics and perspective relate to each other and how artists have compromised between the view which would be correct from one viewpoint and having unsatisfactory distortions. A quite brilliant book - this is a second copy, bought to give to an artiist friend.
